Nollywood actress Foluke Daramola -Salako is of the belief that the different political affiliations of husband and wife should never be a cause for worry or problems.
Daramola aired her opinion following her appointment to the presidential campaign council of Bola Tinubu and APC.
While her husband Ezekiel Kayode Salako remains the chairman of the Labour Party in Lagos and “fully obi-dient”, Daramola was appointed as the Assistant Director for the media department of the Performing Arts Directorate of the APC’s presidential council.
She says her husband’s role will not affect her loyalty to APC, and the same goes for me. Adding that allegations that her husband may be a mole in Labour Party are baseless and irrelevant.
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.
