Dr Bukola Saraki has officially welcomed Nigerian actor and music star, Olubankole Wellington, better known as Banky W into the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Saraki who is a PDP presidential aspirant on Tuesday announced that he officially welcomed Banky W into the party.
“It was a pleasure to welcome Banky W to the @OfficialPDPNig yesterday alongside Jandor! #powertothepeople,” Saraki tweeted.
The singer cum politician is running again for the Eti-Osa House of Representatives seat in Lagos, this time as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.
In 2019, he ran on the platform of the little known Modern Democratic Party, which was formed in 2017.
But in the election held on 23 February 2019, he lost to Babajide Obanikoro of the All Progressives Congress.
Come 2023, Wellington is banking on the PDP to realise his dream to win the seat.
