Nigerian musician and the EME Boss Banky W continues to reveal his plans and policy if elected.
Few weeks ago, Banky W declared his intention to contest for a seat at the house of Reps, under the Modern Democratic Party.
However in an interview with PREMIUM TIMES, Banky reveals he’s in support of the state police.
“I know we have really great police officers but I feel like they are underfunded and not really supported and the bad ones make everyone else look bad.
So, I think there is some reform that needs to happen in the police as a whole and I would encourage us to look towards state police.”
Meanwhile, Banky W reveals why he decided to run, saying it is destiny.
For me, it is about destiny and impact.
I have lived outside of the country for a little over half of my life
and I have had those opportunities and they are still there for me if I wanted to take them but I feel like my destiny is here.
“I feel like I have been given the success, the platform, the following and the relevance that I have because I am meant to use it for a greater good.
I am meant to use it to impact my generation.
I am meant to use it to empower the young people around me.
I am meant to use it to make my community and my country better.
“So, if I run away because life is easier elsewhere, that will be running away from my problems
and I am intent on impacting my generation and fulfilling my purpose, that is why I am here,”
The community is ready for people with vision and the intellectual capacity and for fresh faces on the scene that generally have good intentions for the country.
Talking about his campaign policy, he said:
“For us now, it is about going door-to-door, community-to-community in Eti-Osa and letting them know that they do have a separate option,
an alternative that is willing to try to do things differently and hopefully, to do things better.
“At the end of the day, if it’s the will of God and the will of the community, then we willl win but if it is not, then
we are okay with that because we have been playing our role in trying to improve our community and that is never going to stop, whether we get the seat or not,”
He however ended the conversation stating the reason he didn’t run under any popular party.
That is (why) we have set up our own political party.
We have set up MDP. It is a new party.
It is self-funded because we do not (want) to answer to the powers that be.
We just want a seat at the table of governance.
We want to bring our own chair so that the only people that we will be answering to, are the people who put us in office – which is the community.
“And I think that marks a difference between what we are trying to do and what other politicians are doing.”
