Popular singer turned politician, Bankole Wellington, popularly known as BankyW has narrated how his wife reacted to his decision to run for a political office.
The singer on Tuesday wrote about his wife reactions on his Twitter handle and Instagram page.
He Wrote “My wife’s immediate reaction was one of intense worry. She had said, ‘I know you and I know you will do an incredible job in office, but politics in Nigeria is dirty and dangerous. And I don’t want anything to soil or harm you.’
Indeed BankyW shared the sentiment of his dearest wife, Adesua as he said “Politics in Nigeria is dirty and dangerous, but that is because the good people have almost always avoided it. Most of us won’t join a party, some of us won’t even register to vote, but we all complain about a rotten political system. Successful, progressive, Nigerians – people who, like me, have built careers and companies, provided employment for many and who keep beating the odds to succeed – don’t ever want to get involved in politics.”
