Days after his victory at the People’s Democratic Party primary election in Lagos, Banky W may not be the party’s candidate for the Eti-Osa Federal Constituency, Lagos, according to some reports.
Although details of the move are still sketchy as at the time of this report but this has come as a rude shock to many Nigerians, especially youths.
YabaCity recalls that on Monday, May 22, 2022, Nigerian singer turned politician, Bankole Wellington, popularly called Banky W, won the PDP ticket to represent the party as its House of Representatives candidate in the upcoming 2023 elections.
Banky W was contesting for the Eti-Osa Federal Constituency seat and the music star polled 28 votes to beat his closest opponent who scored three votes.
A total of 140 aspirants vied for PDP tickets for the 40 seats in the Lagos State House of Assembly, while 85 aspirants sought the state’s 24 House of Representatives seats.
