EME boss, Banky W, has declared his candidacy for the Eti Osa, Lagos seat at the House of Representatives in the 2019 general elections.
Banky, who is running under the platform of the Modern Democratic Party (MDP), made the declaration on Saturday at an event organised by the party tagged “Play Your Part”.
As we all know, Nigerians must have their say and not everyone is fully on board with Banky’s decision.
Check out some Twitter reactions below.
I haven't seen anything that Banky has done that makes him a good political candidate. No track record for how he has made an impact in Nigeria. I'd rather vote for Ada D Body.— Oyin. (@TheVixenPixie) November 11, 2018
Not my place to talk about Banky’s private charity work, but the man invests to in communities like mad.— Editi Effiòng (@EditiEffiong) November 11, 2018
E.g. After our shoot in Bauchi, Banky secretly went back and refurbished a school sanitary facility. He did this alone and said nothing. https://t.co/lPYQBRcaES
You don't have to like Banky.— Written By (@DamiElebe) November 11, 2018
But we cannot continue mocking people who step up to do something politically. What the hell is that about?
You want change but you want it from the same politicians?
People prolly just not supporting Banky W's political ambition cos it looks like a retirement plan after music. The transition woulda been easy if he was ever vocal or spearheading any political movement before now. ?— Ferdinand (@Burmese_Tyga) November 10, 2018
Banky W declared to run for House of Representatives representing Eti-Osa, Lagos State & some young people are already ridiculing his campaign. One said it's a joke. The only joke here is a person who hasn't done anything about the status quo criticising one who's trying to do so— World Publicist (@IsimaOdeh) November 10, 2018
Now I see why Banky W turned to a motivation speaker pic.twitter.com/F5xQ47GVyv— Tunde Fatuntele (@Koboko_GCFR) November 10, 2018
BANKY W declared last night to run for a Political office in Eti-osa and some people were already tweeting “Dead on Arrival” . If you continue with this kinda negativity, YOU WILL NEVER EXPERIENCE ANYTHING GOOD IN YOUR LIFE AND EVEN THE NEXT!— Oku Ekpenyong (@Oku_yungx) November 11, 2018
