Entertainment celebrities back Ambode’s re-election


Some entertainment celebrities including Singer Olamide, actor Kunle Afolayan and Yeni Kuti have thrown their weights behind the re-election bid of incumbent Lagos State governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode.

Recall that Ambode is in danger of not being the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress in 2019, a party, which platform he won the election to govern the state. The governor’s reelection bid is currently lacking the supports of the party’s leaders and members with majority of the party’s stalwarts backing Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s candidacy.

However, it appears there is support for Ambode from another quarter, the entertainment industry, after the State Commissioner for tourism, arts, and culture, Mr. Steve Ayorinde posted a fist painted in the colours of the state with the inscription, “I Stand With Ambode for continuation of Good Governance,” to his Instagram page.

The post drew the responses of the likes of Olamide, Afolayan and Kuti as they drummed support for Ambode’s reelection in series of posts.
