Why I Ran Away From Twitter After Election – Funke Akindele
Funke Akindele, the famous Nollywood actress-turned politician, has talked about her disappearance from Twitter.
She opened up on her sudden disappearance from the microblogging platform, Twitter after losing the gubernatorial election.
Recall that Funke Akindele, who was the running mate to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate in Lagos State, Abdulazeez Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, had deleted all her campaign posts and political related posts shared on her on social media after the election.
This comes after the incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu under the umbrella of the All Progressives Congress, APC, defeated the major opposition party, PDP, in the March 18, 2023, gubernatorial elections.
Funke was queried by a fan @apexproperties2 about her absence from the app.
The fan @apexproperties2 wrote, “Madam Funke, I cite you. Longest time, you ran away from us or what happened?”
Funke responded, “Dem too dey insult people on this app, so I stay off.”
In a similar trend, another user @Odunismy_name under the comments section asked if Akindele was afraid of the people.
@Odunis my_ name wrote: “Are you afraid of people?”
Funke answered: “No I’m not afraid. I’m just careful.”
