Banky W, the Nigerian singer, has once again declared his intention to run for the house of representatives.
The 41-year-old musician and politician announced his intention in a series of posts via his social media handles on Friday.
According to him, the official declaration of his ambition would take place on Saturday in Lagos.
Banky W is seeking to represent Eti-Osa federal constituency at the house of representatives in 2023 on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
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

The singer said it has become imperative for young Nigerians to join the system in order to fix it.
“I know this is April Fool’s Day, but this is not a joke. We must engage with Nigeria where it is, not where we prefer for it to be. We must no longer be content to shout from the sidelines. We must get into the system to fix it,” he wrote.
“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 about our problems is over. It’s time to #TalkAndDo. I hope and pray that I can count on you. We move.”
In 2019, the singer contested the same position under the Modern Democratic Party (MDP) but lost to Babajide Obanikoro of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the polls.
