According to checks conducted by a Daily Trust correspondent, the actress was just mentioned as a potential running mate, and the governorship candidate’s choice of the running mate has not yet been made.
It was learned that a committee had been established to assess the applicants and choose the most qualified one to be Jandor’s running mate.
A meeting of party stakeholders is currently taking place to choose one of the nominees as of the time this report was filed.
However, it was discovered that Lagos West, where two of the shortlisted candidates, Rhodes-Vivour and Kolawole are from, is the same senatorial district as Jandor, which may be detrimental to those candidates’ chances.
Yeye Shobajo and Funke Akindele are from the East, while Balogun is from Lagos Central.
