“Don’t sit at home and complain, get up and make a change.”
David Adeleke, also known as Davido, has congratulated Banky W, a prominent music star, on getting the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ticket to stand for the House of Representatives, Eti-Osa Federal Constituency seat in the 2023 elections.
Banky W scored a resounding victory in the PDP state Assembly and House of Representatives primary elections on Monday, polling 28 to 3 votes.
In response, Davido vowed support for Banky W’s dream in a tweet on Tuesday morning, stating the musician and movie star has done his part.
Davido challenged other Nigerian youths to become more involved in politics in order to effect change.
“Congrats @BankyW!” he commented on Twitter. I will back you up! Get up and make a change, rather than sitting at home whining.”
Banky W ran for the House of Representatives under the Modern Democratic Party (MDP) in the 2019 election, but was defeated by Ibrahim Obanikoro of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
