"I mean, it's Funke Akindele; it's going to be the best of the best. She has been raising the bar from one level to another throughout her career."

She added:

"Funke is someone who, as an actor, I can give my hand to and allow her to lead me blind. If she holds me and says, "follow me", I'll follow her. So basically, I believe in her and her agenda, and I'm not talking about the Party; I'm talking about the person. I believe in Funke Akindele, and I wish her the best."

"Funke Akindele is a great leader," - Etinosa

The beautiful Edo queen also spoke about her trust in Funke's leadership skills and why she's more interested in her capacity as a person rather than the platform she is running on.

"I can't say for the Party because I have never really followed them up and what they have to offer in any of their campaigns. But I am speaking specifically on Funke Akindele. She's a great leader and someone I will trust any day, anytime."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng recalls reporting that Nollywood actress Etinosa Idemudia, since her big break in the entertainment industry, had come to be known as someone who never shies away from expressing her thoughts and would say them exactly as they are.

During an interview, Etinosa revealed that she hugely supported Peter Obi and his political ideals.

However, she couldn't help but call out some of her colleagues, who she accused of collecting stipends from another presidential candidate to sell the country to a less deserving person.
