Musician and politician Bankole Wellington, better known as Banky W, has penned a heartwarming message thanking his wife Adesua Etomi-Wellington for sticking with him on his political journey.
The singer shared a video of himself and his wife from their campaign with some women in Etiosa, Lagos, causing Banky to recount how his wife used to hate politics but chose to support him nonetheless.
Read the heartfelt post:
“Susu always hated politics… So when I began talking about the burden I had to run for office, I’m sure you can imagine how she felt. She said “Banky I know you, and I know your heart… and if you’re given an opportunity, I’m sure you would do a great job and make a difference… BUT politics in Nigeria is dirty and dangerous. And I don’t want anything to soil you or harm you.”
Banky W said he joined politics to change a system that was not working.
He is the candidate for the People’s Democratic Party’s House of Representatives for the Eti-Osa Federal Constituency.
