Nollywood actress and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) deputy governorship candidate in Lagos, Funke Akindele has sparked mixed reactions as she intensifies efforts to enable her party to win the 2023 election.
Like some politicians who share photos of themselves associating with the masses during election periods, Funke took to her Instagram page to share old memories with street children.
In the photo, Funke is captured excited about identifying with the children.
Captioning the post, the mother of two stated that children are the heritage of God, and they are a reward from the womb.
She wrote: “Omo ni Ini Oluwa! Omo inu si ni Ere re!! #childrenareanheritageofthelord #thefruitofthewombishisreward”
While some fans applauded her love for kids others slammed her stating it all for the campaign.
