Nigerian musician and politician, Olubankole Wellington, had declared intention to run again for a seat in the House of Representatives, Eti-Osa, Lagos by joining the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He disclosed this in a video which was posted on Friday via his official Twitter account, stating that in 2019, he planted a seed by contesting even though he didn’t win.
“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.
“Tomorrow we declare. Then we move. DM @thebworg if you’d like to join us tomorrow, we need as many people as possible. We need you.
