Nigerian musician, Olubankole Wellington aka Banky W is officially a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The musician made this known on his Instagram page.
Banky W took to his social media pages last Friday to declare his intention to contest for the seat of Eti-Osa Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives.
Officially declaring his intention and choice of platform, Banky W took to his social media page and wrote: “I willing to announce that I will once again be answering the call to serve by attempting to secure the ticket to represent Eti-Osa Federal Constituency of Lagos State in the House of Representatives on the platform of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).
“Some may not agree or understand my decision to run or my choice of the platform but I have learnt that we must engage with Nigeria where it is not where we hope that it should be.
“We must no longer be content to shout from the sidelines, we must get into the system and fix it.
“The problems in Nigeria are from the top down but the solutions are from the bottom up and so some of us must infiltrate the major platforms that exist in order to build an army of like minds who will enter government with the same agenda.
“In 2019, we planted the seed. In 2023 by the grace of God and with the support of our people, we will win the seat. The time for talking about problems is over, it’s time to talk and do.”
Banky W captioned the video: “We must engage with Nigeria where it is, not where we prefer for it to be. In 2019, we planted the seed. In 2023, by the grace of God, and with your support, we will win the seat. The time for just talking is over. It’s time to #TalkAndDo. I hope I can count on you. We move.”
