Singer Banky W has declared his interest to represent the people of Eti Osa, Lagos, at the House of Representatives in the 2019 general elections.
Banky made the declaration on Saturday at an event organised by the party tagged “Play Your Part”.
The singer who is running under the platform of the Modern Democratic Party (MDP), shared the news on Instagram.
“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. #Hope19 #EtiOsa #MDP”
Banky has been very vocal about citizens participating in the electoral process and politics in the last few months and has spoken at conferences with the same theme across the country.
