    Published By:

    Mr Olubankole Wellington (Banky W), a Nigerian RnB singer and Songwriter, has again emerged winner of the PDP House of Representative rerun primaries for Eti-Osa constituency of Lagos State.

    Banky W won the People Democratic Party primaries for the constituency held on 22 May across the state but was cancelled by the party.

    The musician and actor won the election with landslide vote of 24 to 5. The election took place at the party secretariat on Alpha Beach Road in Eti-Osa Local Government Area of Lekki Lagos

    The election started at 4.45pm held for 30 minutes with two contestants, 28 delegates from the wards and one national delegate, a total of 29 delegates. Banky W contested against another candidate who was legal practitioner, Mr Sam Aiboni.

    The returning officer, Mr Ojosegun Abayomi, screened the 29 delegates and announced the absence of two of the delegates. At the end of the election, he declared Banky W the winner and described the process as peaceful and transparent.

    Reacting to his victory, Banky W expressed gratitude to the party for the opportunity to represent it and said that he was very thankful to the people as well.

    “I want to thank the party for taking its time to ensure we did this election again to make sure it was free and fair. “I want to thank the leaders, the delegates, the party members, the presiding officer, INEC, the DSS and the police for being here to ensure this election is free and fair.”

    He also thanked his opponent and stated that he was a formidable competition but he didn’t see him as an opponent, rather, brother’s on the same side.

    I hope that after today, we will be working together to win Eti-Osa for our people. “I believe that we can do so much better, Nigeria is in a heartbreaking place and we need people that have our interest and that of our nation and community at heart.

    “I promise that given this mandate, I will be a servant by God’s grace and I will make the people of Eti-Osa, Lagos state and Nigeria proud.

    “We did it again and by the grace of God, we will continue to win,” he said.

    On his part, Abioni offered congratulations to the winner and thanked the party for the free and fair election conducted.
