Banky W is set to contest for Federal House of Rep in Eti Osa, under the Modern Democratic Party.
Banky W declared to run for House of Representatives representing Eti-Osa, Lagos State & some young people are already ridiculing his campaign. One said it's a joke. The only joke here is a person who hasn't done anything about the status quo criticising one who's trying to do so— World Publicist (@IsimaOdeh) November 10, 2018

If you're a youth and you go against Banky W intention pls note that you're one of the problem in this country!— Ajasa (@adeshina_ajasa) November 10, 2018
If you stay in Eti Osa axis and you're a graduate and you see Banky W intention as scam you've problem.
Lemme ask you did you know the outgoing Hon rep Eti Osa?
I thought we've always been clamoring for young people in politics. Cos I don't understand the outrage about Banky W's House of Reps. ambition.— Wale Adetona (@iSlimfit) November 11, 2018
Do Nigerians really know what they want?
Or by young, we mean the likes of Shanko Rasheedi?

Reading all the comments on Banky Ws desire to run for house of reps really breaks my heart, he's broke, he has a dead career, he likes attention, he supported a wrong government etcetera etcetera— Yimi Madaki Ikedilo (@IkediloYimi) November 11, 2018

Banky Double-U just declared his intention to run for public office in Nigeria. Does that mean he will renounce his US citizenship or can u be a dual citizen and run for public office in Nigeria cuz I’m not understanding.— A.M.B (@AMB_Noni) November 10, 2018
Remembering the role Banky played in bringing in Buhari is why i find it hard to take him serious when it comes to Politics.— Okeke Chukwuka (@RebelChuck) November 10, 2018
People prolly just not supporting Banky W's political ambition cos it looks like a retirement plan after music. The transition woulda been easy if he was ever vocal or spearheading any political movement before now. ?— Ferdinand (@Burmese_Tyga) November 10, 2018
