The Deputy Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Ms Funke Akindele, has said that it was God that called her and the party’s Governorship Candidate, Dr Abdul-Azeez Adediran (Jandor) to change the fortune of the state if elected in 2023.
Akindele, a popular Nollywood Actress, made this remark at the Sunday Worship Service of the Ayo Ni O Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church, Surulere District, Badagry Circuit Headquarters.
According to her, God has been with her right from birth and he is interested in her aspirations to make Lagos state work for all segments and divisions of the state.
She stated that God has been with her from infant till she went to school and till now.
She explained that God chose her to be the Deputy Governorship Candidate of the PDP despite the large population of interested parties.
“I give God all the glory for what he has done. God has always been doing the best for me.
“We were called by God, if not we would have backed out. People have suffered, but God has called us and put us forward to come and change the story of Lagos. The success of Lagos is ours,” she said.
Leading a prayer session for Akindele, Snr Apostle Akinwale Pearse, the Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the church, urged members of the church to pray to God to fulfil the aspirations of the deputy governorship candidate.
Also speaking, Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria in Badagry Local Government, Dr. Sunday Hunyinbo commended Akindele and Dr Abdul-Azeez Adediran (Jandor) for seeking God and his blessings in their aspirations.
Hunyinbo urged the deputy governorship candidate and her principal to live the talk and fulfill all the promises made to the people during their campaigns if they emerge governor in 2023.
“We are praying for you. God will take you there. I am neither an APC or PDP or LP member but God’s will will be fulfilled. God will back you up,” Hunyinbo said.
In his sermon, Pastor Adedokun Adewale, who stressed the need for all people to fear God, said that man’s disobedience and sins led to his fall from the creation.
According to him, the fall of man is not the end as God is merciful and faithful, requiring repentance from man to avoid eternal death.
