Banky W wins PDP House of Representatives Primaries Re-run

Bankole Wellington, a renowned singer and politician, has finally been declared the winner of the PDP House of Representatives Primaries election in Eti-Osa Federal Constituency, Lagos State.

Recall that on May 23rd, the party primary election was conducted and he won by a large margin, defeating his opponent with over 25 votes. However, the result became a subject of controversy after his opponent was declared the winner.

The party leaders ordered a rerun in which Banky W won yet again with 24 votes against his main opponent, Sam Aiboni, who scored only five votes.

Winning the primaries means that Banky will represent PDP as the House of Reps candidate in the upcoming election.

In the 2019 elections, Wellington contested the House of Representatives seat under the Modern Democratic Party (MDP), but lost to Ibrahim Obanikoro of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
