People Who Should Be In Jail Or Exile Are The Ones On Campaign Posters – Banky W

Banky W Reveals Dark Past About Self

Former E.M.E record label CEO, singer and a one-time House of Representatives aspirant on the platform of the Modern Democratic Party in the 2019 general election, Olubankole Wellington better known as Banky W, has stated that the people who should be in jail or in exile are the ones seen on campaign posters during election season in Nigeria.

The singer said this on Nigeria Info FM’s Daily Digest programme on Tuesday.

He also revealed that his political ambition was borne out of frustration with the political status quo and the plight of young Nigerians who don’t even know who their representatives in government are.

On why he ran for office, he said, “The first person I spoke to was my wife. I said we can’t sit around during election season and people who should be in jail or on exile are the ones on the campaign posters around and also the ones who keep getting into these powerful offices in the country.”

And that his wife expressed belief in his ambition but pointed out that politics is dirty and dangerous.

The singer continued, “I said, well, it will always be dirty and dangerous if everybody who is good, credible and with good interest at heart forever sits out of the process. This will leave the scum of the earth that we have here to occupy the seats and then we’ll turn around and complain that Nigeria is bad.”

Speaking on why he didn’t run on a popular platform like the All Progressives Congress, the Peoples Democratic Party, or rely on a godfather, he said “The battle in Nigeria is not between APC and PDP, it’s between the political class and everybody else because APC and PDP tend to be the same. Their members are just jumping back and forth, and the parties don’t have ideologies per se, they are just platforms that people use to leapfrog into power.

“So, there was that frustration with the political status quo. Also, wanting to stand up for something, represent a different set of ideas and reach out to the younger generation that does not believe in either of those two platforms, to try and put ourselves together and push back against these things to show what is possible and what can be done.”

On the Independent National Electoral Commission deregistering the Modern Democratic Party, Banky W stated that it was a good thing.

He said, “I felt like there were too many political parties. Having 90 political parties is a little bit ridiculous. The deregistration forces us to either come together or start to infiltrate the major political parties and start to make those changes from within. But if you have over 90 platforms of people pushing, invariably we’ll just empower the two major parties to continue the way that they are.”

Toyosi In Jenifa's Dairy Accuses Pastor Of Sexual Abuse

Nigerian Actress, Juliana Oluwatobiloba Olayode, popularly known as Toyosi in the television series Jenifa’s Diary has alleged that the pastor of Mine Teen Ministry, Timi Adigun sexually abused and manipulated her sister.

Toyosi had earlier disclosed that the pastor who was her ‘Spiritual father’ was in control of her Facebook and other social media accounts.

However, Adigun denied the allegations stating that he had no passwords to the social media accounts of Toyosi.

But in what now seemed to be a war of words between the pastor and Toyo Baby, the pastor in a three-part video on Instagram, claimed that he knows some secrets about the actress but would rather not expose her.

Responding, the actress wrote, “Your videos brought back memories, sad memories, painful memories, I have not been able to stop thinking about them, I cannot even sleep. Did you listen to yourself at all? I don’t think you did.

“You manipulated and sexually abused my sister and you thought I would be calm, you expect me not to be furious, how are you processing the things you did and the things you said? I don’t understand you.

“You talk about apology and forgiveness. Forgiving you is a process for me. I forgave you then, for my sanity, just when I am trying to move on, you do something else that triggers me and I get mad at you again and I beg God to help me forgive you again.

“The hurt is really deep, the pain, the trauma, the disappointment, the sleepless nights, the tears that drenched my pillow, the shock, the entire experience is indescribable. Like I said, there is so much to say. I don’t have the words yet,” she said.

Dunamis Church Delists Sammie Okposo From Activities

Dunamis International Gospel Centre has removed gospel singer, Sammie Okposo, from the list of artists expected to participate in its concert on Friday following his adultery scandal.

A new flyer sighted on Instagram showed that the singer whose name was previously listed to perform has been dropped.

This comes after the singer confessed and publicly apologized for cheating on his wife Ozioma with a US-based lady.

Apologizing in a now deleted Instagram post on Tuesday, he wrote: ”Dear friends, I need to bring a very unfortunate incident to your attention as I am not proud of it but know that this is the right thing to do.

“On my recent trip to the USA (late 2021), I got intimately involved with a lady, knowing that this was not appropriate as a married man and a minister of the gospel. I am ashamed and regret my action as it has caused a lot of pain to my dear wife, Ozioma, my family and I.

“As I work in making peace with God, repenting and asking for His forgiveness, I am suspending myself from all ministry work until full restoration as this is what is proper and what I know I owe God and His people.”
