Funke Akindele, Eniola Badmus: Two Friends Divided By Politics

Since her emergence as the deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos, actress-turned-politician Funke Akindele and her close friend Eniola Badmus have been politically divided over their support for preferred presidential and governorship candidates.

Funke Akindele was confirmed as the running mate of Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, the governorship candidate of PDP in Lagos on July 12.

Although Eniola Badmus congratulated Funke on her appointment, the duo has kept their distance from each other on social media, especially on posts about supporting their candidates.

While Funke Akindele as a PDP deputy governorship candidate supports the party’s presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, Eniola, a staunch supporter of All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu, has continued to throw her weight behind the latter’s presidential ambition and also endorsing the Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for a second term, leaving the once close Omo Ghetto stars divided as their political interest does not align.

Funke returned the favour on Eniola’s 39th birthday on September 7.
