Nollywood Veteran and Lagos state deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Funke Akindele, has revealed she was born and raised in the Celestial Church of Christ (CCC).
The award-winning filmmaker made the assertion when she called on the clergy of the church to pray for her, as she embarks on her political endeavour.
In a clip shared on social media, on Sunday, by CCC Wonderland Parish, Funke said she was born and raised in CCC, adding that her case could be likened to a lost sheep who has returned home.
“I was born and raised in Celestial. My situation was like that of a lost sheep that God calls back home,” she said.
Speaking in both English and Yoruba languages and donning the church’s white garment called ‘sutana’, said she had always come back to the church in secret for solutions to challenges.
