Singer, Bankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W, has been declared the winner of the PDP primary rerun for the Eti-Osa constituency House of Representatives ticket in the 2023 general election.
Banky W polled 24 votes out of 29 votes cast by delegates at the primary rerun held in Lagos on Monday to defeat his challenger Sam Aiboni, a legal practitioner, who polled five votes.
The rerun comes two weeks after Banky W was earlier declared winner in the election but the result slip showed his challenger, Aiboni, as the winner.
Following the controversies that trailed the primary, another election was scheduled
Banky W’s campaign Team, in announcing the new victory, said “While we are grateful for our success at the primaries, we are completely heartbroken at the state of our nation.
“We must play our part in fixing the Nation, and we must get into the system to help fix it. Our work begins now. Please join us.”
A video on his campaign Instagram page showed the counting of the votes, as attendees chanted victory songs and lifted him up in the air.
