Banky W, a Nigerian music legend, will formally announce his intention to run for the House of Representatives under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
On Friday, April 1st, the singer made the announcement on Twitter, revealing that everything will be official by Saturday, April 2nd, 2022.
He also disclosed that he will run for the federal constituency of Eti-Osa as a member of the People’s Democratic Party.
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. pic.twitter.com/lCGO4PpCBj

He is, however, running for the same job for the second time; in 2019, he ran under the Modern Democratic Party (MDP) and lost to Babajide Obanikoro of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
