Nigerian singer, music producer and record executive, Olubankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W, has clinched the Peoples Democratic Party’s ticket for the Eti-Osa Federal Constituency in Lagos State.
Banky, who only recently joined the PDP polled a total of 28 votes ahead of his opponent, who scored a meagre 3 votes to clinch the ticket.
This will be his second attempt at winning a seat in the green chambers of the National Assembly, having lost out on the ticket of the All Progressive Congress to Ibrahim Obanikoro for the 2019 election.
The singer had announced his intention to run for the House of Representatives seat in April.
“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,” he tweeted at that time.
