Singer, director and producer, Banky Wellington has a few hours ago, unveiled a political poster as he indicates his intentions to run for an office in the forth coming 2019 general elections in Nigeria.
Banky Wellington who is also an actor, took everyone by surprise, as he put up the political poster that reads HOPE’19, which also indicates that he is running for the Federal House of Representatives to represent Eti Osa Federal Constituency of Lagos State, under Modern Democratic Party (MDP).
The multitalented entertainer, will be banking on his fame to win the election, as he joins other celebrities and young generation of Nigerians who have indicated interest and will be contesting in the 2019 general elections.
Putting up the post, captions it with these few words:
“They said we don’t have the money to run.. we say we our strength lies in our numbers. They said we don’t have the structure, we say we will attempt to build it. They said “what if you lose”? I say, what if we win? You see, my entire life has been a story of just dreaming dreams, praying about those dreams, setting goals, and working until they come true. I can live with trying and failing. I can not live with not trying. So while we may not have a godfather, we do have God. And we have vision. And intellectual capacity. And integrity. And the right intentions. And last but not least, a whole lot of hope. At the end of the day, hope may be all we have, but I believe that it is all we need. Thank you and God bless Nigeria.”
