Nigerian singer, Olubankole Wellington, popularly known by the stage name Banky W, and also Banky Wellington, has declared his intention to run for the Federal House of Representative seat in Lagos.
The singer would be representing Eti-Osa local government area of Lagos State.
Banky W made this announcement on his Instagram page after he shared what seems to be his campaign poster with a caption explaining why he is running for office.
Read what he wrote below;
They said we don’t have the money to run.. we say we 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?
You see, my entire life has been a story of just dreaming dreams, praying about those dreams, setting goals, and working until they come true. I can live with trying and failing. I can not live with not trying.
So while we may not have a godfather, we do have God. And we have vision. And intellectual capacity. And integrity. And the right intentions. And last but not least, a whole lot of hope.
At the end of the day, hope may be all we have, but I believe that it is all we need. Thank you and God bless Nigeria.
