Funke Adesiyan who recently signaled her intention to run for Oyo State House Of Assembly (Ibadan S-E) under PDP platform is not backing down.

In a recent chat with Industry Magazine, Funke said she is doing so for the good of women.

In her own words:

“Most of the time, you hear people talk about what they would have done differently if they are involved in decision making about their community and nation and you wonder why they won’t get involved in politics. If you are not part of decision making, then you live by the law others make for you either you like or . Charity begins at home, it’s best to effect changes in my immediate environment first. My people love me, my women love me and my youths are in support of me. When you have God and your people, the sky is the beginning. There is no dream that is too tall. If you can dream it you can achieve it. I have signaled my intention to run for seat of house of assembly and we are very confident. I’m contesting under the platform of Peoples Democratic Party”,(PDP)

Funke Adesiyan is the 2nd Nollywood lady to venture into politics this year, Kate Henshaw is also running for House Of Assembly in Calabar.
