Actress Foluke Daramola has stated that her husband Kayode Salako’s support for Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi will not affect her loyalty to the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu.
Foluke Daramola made this known in statement shared on Instagram on Tuesday, adding that their divided political interests will not affect their marriage.
She wrote: “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.”
“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. We are people of integrity. My husband will not come to share sensitive information about his party with me and I will not do the same. There is still a long way to go in life and our reputation is very important to us.”
She added that Tinubu has supported her on numerous occasions including her wedding.
“Maybe you do not know that I have been in politics for long, In fact, I met my husband through activism and I have also been a member of APC for a long time. Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is a father to me, he signed the certificate of my first marriage, his wife Oluremi was the mother of the day on my engagement while Femi Pedro was the chairman of the day.
“I have a rich history with Asiwaju, so this is not just a normal assignment for me, it is a serious assignment given to me by my father, so I tell you, my husband won’t have a problem with me working for my father,” she said.
The actress was recently appointed as the media assistant for the performing arts directorate department of the APC’s presidential campaign council in Lagos state.
Her husband, on the other hand, is the Lagos chairman of the Labour Party and supporter of Peter Obi.
