Nigerian singer, Bankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W, who is vying for a seat in the House of Representatives to represent the Eti-Osa federal constituency in Lagos State, has said that despite the prospect of being outspent by other aspirants, he stands a chance to win the seat due to his sense of vision.

Banky W argued that he was not defeated in the 2019 elections but succeeded in “planting a seed” in the collective consciousness of Nigerian youths ahead of the 2023 elections.

Wellington disclosed this to journalists at the Peoples Democratic Party’s Wadata Plaza secretariat in Abuja when he obtained his expression of interest and nomination forms for N600,000.

He argued that Nigerian youths could no longer afford to can sit and complain but must join mainstream political platforms that give them the chance to play a part in rebuilding the nation.
