Singer, Banky W charges youth to be active in politics
Nigerian musician turned politician, Banky W, born Olubankole Wellington, who is running to represent Eti-Osa Constituency in the Federal House of Representatives,charged the Nigerian youth to become active participants in the 2019 elections.
“It’s a lot harder to try, and a lot easier to criticize. It is a lot easier to talk about it, than to do something about it. We only fail when we stop trying, and battles are only lost when you stop fighting. So, don’t just tweet and talk, walk the walk.
“I am running for my unborn children, because when our generation is old and grey, and we hand the country over to them, and they asked what we did about the state of affairs, whether Nigeria ends up being great, or forever a shadow of what could have been, I want to be able to look my kids in the face and say you know what? I tried.”
He said this at The Convergence event in Abuja.
