Mr. Olubankole ‘Banky W’ Wellington, the Nigerian musician, actor, writer and director known for his advocacy and passion for voters education, has announced his intention to serve as a federal legislator, representing Eti-Osa local government area of Lagos State.
He made the declaration Saturday at the debut convention of the Modern Democratic Party (MDP), a political party founded in 2017 by a consortium of youth associations.
In a recent publication by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ‘Summary of Submission of Form CF002 for Presidential and National Assembly Elections’, the MDP is one of the political parties whose total number of candidates for the 2019 presidential and national assembly elections are in the single digit bracket . The Modern Democratic Party (MDP) and the Youth Party (YP) have two nominees each for the House of Representatives.
The Modern Democratic Party is led by Prince Bukunyi Olateru-Olagbegi, a 27 year-old youth activist and entrepreneur. The party along with 21 other parties received their certificate of registration from the INEC last January.
