Again Banky W runs for office under PDP
Popular Nigerian singer and movie maker, Bankole Wellington best known as Banky W, will be running for office. The singer has announced he will be vieing for House of Representatives in the 2023 general elections under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform.
“I would like to announce that I will once again be answering the call to serve by attempting to secure a ticket to represent Eti-Osa federal constituency in the House of representatives of Lagos State on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),” the Nigerian celebrity announced.
“Some may not understand or agree with my decision to run or my choice of platform, but I’ve learnt that we must
engage with Nigeria where it is, not where we hope that it should be.”
This will not be the first time the singer is running for office. He contested in 2019 under Modern Democratic Party (MDP). He, however, lost the election to Babajide Obanikoro, who ran under the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Tomorrow we declare. Then we move. DM @thebworg if you'd like to join us tomorrow, we need as many people as possible. We need you. We must engage with Nigeria where it is, not where we prefer for it to be.
The time for just talking is over. It's time to #TalkAndDo. Pls join us. pic.twitter.com/zjGp8EhN9M
