Nollywood actress turned politician, Funke Adesiyan, has dumped the opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling party All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday, December 16.
The actress formally announced her exit from the main opposition party as she joined the ruling APC through a press statement signed by her.
According to the actress, her desire to join politics was to touch the lives of the man next door but the dream was not possible on the platform which she had declared her intention in the last general election, this she said made her declare interest in joining the ‘Progressives’.
Read her reasons as stated in the press statement she shared on her Instagram page below:
My journey into politics was borne out of my passion and desire to touch people's lives positively. Having realised that there was little I could achieve in my private capacity, I decided to put myself in the political landscape of the country. That resolve has never changed. My mission has always been to make life easy for the man next door. While that could not be achieved on a different platform in #2015 due to factors that would not be necessary to delve into at this time; it is my joy to announce today that I am joining the #progressives with the same resolve. My commitment and loyalty to whatever or whoever I believe in is unwavering, unflagging and unflinching. I assure my people of my unalloyed commitment to a life more abundant. This can only be achieved by working side by side with individuals who are also driven by the same passion to achieve an egalitarian society. God bless Nigeria God bless Oyo State. Funke Adesiyan.
