"I am running for my unborn children" - Banky W charges Youths to be Active Citizens | BellaNaija

Olubankole Wellington, also known as Banky W, has charged the Nigerian youth to become active participants in the 2019 elections.

Banky W, who is running to represent Eti-Osa Constituency in the Federal House of Representatives, said this at The Convergence event in Abuja.

He said:

It’s a lot harder to try, and a lot easier to criticize. It is a lot easier to talk about it, than to do something about it. We only fail when we stop trying, and battles are only lost when you stop fighting. So, don’t just tweet and talk, walk the walk.

I am running for my unborn children, because when our generation is old and grey, and we hand the country over to them, and they asked what we did about the state of affairs, whether Nigeria ends up being great, or forever a shadow of what could have been, I want to be able to look my kids in the face and say you know what? I tried.

    Too much theatrics. This american model of campaigning won’t work for the grassroots. Most people that will vote for you won’t attend most of your glorified talk show. Go on street, knock on every door and get their trust. That is the only way fam. Else they will stick to amala politics which ofcourse won’t help nigeria move forward.
