Nigerian entertainer, Olubankole Wellington, a.k.a Banky W, has declared his intention to contest for the Eti Osa, Lagos seat at the House of representative in the 2019 general election.
Making the announcement in an event tagged “Play Your Part”, Banky revealed that he will be running under the Modern Democratic Party (MDP), a party led by Prince Bukunyi Olateru-Olagbegi, a 27 year-old youth activist and entrepreneur. See post.
“I have shared this vision with quite a few people. Some have been incredibly supportive, but some have advised against it. I am under no illusions that this run will be easy. Considering who we are going up against, this is almost impossible. They said we don’t have the money to run… we say our strength lies in our numbers. They said we don’t have the structure, we say we will attempt to build it. They said “what if you lose”? I say, what if we win? ‘’
