"Happy International Women's Day to the incoming Deputy Governor of Lagos State. You are my hero of Women's Day because you are consistent, resilient & dogged, you fall 13 times & get up 14 times. You constantly remind me that failure in certain areas of your life doesn't define you as a person.

You exude confidence, competence, strength, and compassion all while maintaining beauty. You have succeeded in your career for over 2 decades, which means you clearly understand how to maneuver terrain.

You never let anyone or any situation define you, you are an actor, producer, all-round entertainer, mother, entrepreneur, & politician. You will succeed in this quest because it will be a motivation to the average Nigerian/African girl to dream bigger, for her to know that her background should not keep her back to the ground. For her to know that a woman cannot be boxed or defined. Your ability to regroup, reorganize, restructure & re-strategize should be studied.

I believe in you, I believe in the sincerity of purpose of your political ambitions. Let me just remind you, Ore your dreams are 100% valid, don't let anybody downplay your dream or tell you different, or try to make you feel inferior or less than a befitting candidate.

It hasn't been done before is not an excuse otherwise the world will remain stagnant. Let it be known that I stand with you with my full chest, as a full Lagos boy, bred & brought up in Surulere. I wish you utmost success. Deputy Governor Funke Akindele, that sounds about right. Over here we vote individual & not party. Because at the end of the day, it's the individual that will do the work, not the political party. This Saturday I vote #JandorFunke for a better Lagos."

The election that was scheduled for this Saturday, March 11, has been moved to March 18.
