Famous Nigerian singer and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate for Eti-Osa Federal Constituency of Lagos State, Olubankole Wellington, also known as Banky W, has reacted to the Election Petition Tribunal’s ruling.
The National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal sitting at the Tafawa Balewa Square Lagos, on Monday nullified the victory of the Labour Party’s candidate, Thaddeus Atta as the duly elected representative for Eti-Osa Federal Constituency.
The tribunal’s decision deemed the election inconclusive and mandated the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to organize a supplementary election in 33 polling units where elections were not conducted within a 90-day timeframe.
Reacting to the ruling during his interview on Channels Tv Politics Today on Wednesday, Banky W welcomed the judgement of the Tribunal and described it as a miracle.
“For me personally, it’s a miracle in and of itself that we get another chance to finish the election.
“I think it’s a testament to the power of perseverance, the power of faith, and the collective will of the people who want to participate in the rebuilding of this democracy,” he said.
