Banky W Wins PDP Primary Rerun for Eti-Osa HoR Seat


Bankole Wellington, also known as Banky W, has won a repeat of the Peoples Democratic Party's primary election in Lagos' Eti-Osa Federal Constituency.

Wellington received 24 votes, while his challenger, Sam Aiboni, received only five votes.

After the first primary was cancelled last month, a repeat was scheduled for today. Since joining the main opposition party earlier this year, the singer has been seen as a favourite to win the ticket.

After a conflict between Messrs Wellington and Aiboni forced the party's leadership to intervene from Abuja, the primary was rescheduled. Following that, it was agreed that a repeat would be held.

Mr Wellington defeated Mr Aiboni, a Lagos businessman, with 27 votes to two in the first round.
