Nollywood actress Shirley Igwe has spoken candidly about her intentions to join the ranks of her colleagues who are already heavily involved in Nigerian politics.
Remember how top Nollywood stars, Tonto Dikeh and Funke Akindele were lambasted for entering politics despite having broken marriages?
In Lagos State, Akindele is the Peoples Democratic Party’s nominee for deputy governor; in Rivers State, Dikeh is the African Democratic Party’s nominee for deputy governor.
In response to a query on whether she has any current or future plans to run for political office during an interview with Punch, Shirley Igwe said;
“Sure, why not? If my husband allows me (I will run for political office). We both have to come to a mutual understanding on the matter”.
