The ‘OBO’ crooner also charged Nigerians to get up and make a change rather than sit at home and complain.

“Congrats @BankyW! You have my support! Don’t sit at home and complain, get up and make a change,” he wrote.

The ‘Ebute-Metta’ crooner said it has become imperative for young Nigerians to join the system in order to fix it.

This will be the second time the 41-year-old would be contesting for the same position.

In 2019, Banky W vied under the Modern Democratic Party (MDP) but lost to Babajide Obanikoro of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the polls.
