My husband’s role with Labour Party will not affect my assignment with Tinubu – Actress Foluke Daramola
The Nollywood actress Foluke Daramola-Salako feels that a husband and wife’s differing political allegiances should never be a source of concern or issues.
Following her appointment to the Bola Tinubu and APC presidential campaign council, Daramola voiced her opinion.
Daramola was chosen to serve as the Assistant Director for the media section of the Performing Arts Directorate of the APC’s presidential council, while her husband Ezekiel Kayode Salako continues to serve as the chairman of the Labour Party in Lagos and is “totally obi-dient.”
Daramola expressly stated to PM News that her husband’s position would not alter my devotion to the APC, and vice versa.
She stated that it is irrelevant and unfounded to claim that her husband is a mole for the Labour Party.
Daramola said: “Those who know my husband know he eats and breathes Labour Party. He joined Labour as a citizen who had a different ideology and wants to be part of a different structure. He never knew he will become the Chairman but in the long run, people in his party saw his passion, dedication and commitment and they decided to make him the Chairman in Lagos.”
When asked why she did not join the Labour Party, Daramola said: “One of the attributes of my husband is that he is not autocratic. He respects my decision and my opinion. As I said, he had a different ideology to mine and yet he respects my decision to follow my belief in the APC structure.”
On her new role with the APC government, Daramola said it was a reward for good work.
The actress noted that the reward for good work is more work, noting that she has been in politics for a long time.
