The Modern Democratic Party's candidate for the Federal House of Representatives seat in Eti-Osa, Lagos, Mr. Bankole Wellington, popularly known by his stage name Banky W stayed up all night to observe vote counting in his constituency.
The entertainer turned politician denied himself sleep as he and other well-meaning Lagosians waited for votes to be counted across different polling units where elections had taken place in Eti-Osa.
Banky kept giving situation reports deep into the night and very early this morning until the last vote in the area was calculated and results taken to the collation center for final tallying.
In one of his tweets, he reported that "Some characters came in trying to scatter the Marwa location, claiming that counting should be stopped because it is past 2am. We resisted their attempts with the help of the police. We have all been here all day and will not move until every single vote is counted."
He would later give an update on the situation, confirming that counting of votes recommenced after Police intervened.
Proud of what he has started and accomplished in a very short period, the former singer wrote:
"Regardless of the final outcome, I hope we have inspired enough people in our generation to realize what we can achieve when we stand up for ourselves, and stand together.
We must build this movement and sustain the momentum. This is only the beginning. MDP is the future."
What do you guys think? Is MDP truly the future?
