The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has shortlisted five names as the potential running mate of the party’s governorship candidate, Alhaji Abdulaziz Olajide Adediran popularly known as Jandor.
Among the shortlisted names are Nollywood actress, Olufunke Akindele popularly known as Jenifa; former governorship aspirant, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour; former Senatorial candidate for Lagos East, Yeye Shobajo, another governorship aspirant, David Kolawole Vaughan known as DAKOVA, and Engr. Teslim Balogun.
This is coming after Tonto Dikeh was selected as her party’s 2023 Rivers Deputy Governorship candidate earlier last week. Mr. Tonte Ibraye, the party’s Rivers governorship candidate said, “this is the height of the 2023 general elections; it is a challenge we are throwing to the people of Rivers and Nigerians generally.
Within the last ten years, Nigerian youths had been saying they are not too young to run, that they must be carried along in governance.
And the ADC had decided to sign post that with the team we have put together for Rivers so that they can use the state resources, not just to play politics, but to develop the state and its youths as the human capital base of the country,” he said.
