The national executive council of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has urged its members to support Funke Akindele and other members contesting in the forthcoming general elections.

NAN reports that Emeka Rollas, AGN national president, said members should support them irrespective of their political parties and affiliations.

Rollas, in a statement on Tuesday after the guild’s NEC meeting, also directed members to use the campaign materials of contesting members on their individual social media handles.

“Funke Akindele, Tonto Dikeh, and Femi Branch are running as deputy governorship candidates in Lagos, Rivers, and Ogun respectively,” he said.
