Banky-W political struggle sees light as popular artiste grabs Eti-Osa Federal Constituency ticket


After winning the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) House of Representatives ticket, popular musician Olubankole Wellington, also known as Banky W, expressed his gratitude.

On the PDP’s platform, Banky W will run for the legislative seat of Eti-Osa Federal Constituency in Lagos State.

He received 24 votes in the re-run election on Monday, defeating Sam Aiboni, who received only five votes.

Banky W thanked everyone for their support in helping him earn the Party’s ticket in an Instagram post.

“I want to thank the People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP) Leaders for encouraging me to join the family and empowering me to stand on our great platform,” the musician added.

“I want to thank our party members and delegates for accepting me, for trusting me, and for giving me the go-ahead in a landslide to represent the great constituency of Eti-Osa, Lagos.

“I want to thank my very formidable competitor Barrister Sam Aiboni – we aren’t opponents within the PDP; we’re brothers on the same side, and I hope that our shared love for our community will build a bridge for us to be able to work together for the progress and prosperity of our people.

“Most importantly, I want to thank the almighty God for the gift of life, and purpose. I’m nothing without His Grace.

“I hope we remember that this isn’t about me, this is about all of us.”
