Reviews that Banky W on 11 November 2018, declared his goal to run for the Eti-Osa Government Supporters seat on the foundation of the Advanced Progressive faction.
On February 23, 2019, he lost the election for the Eti-Osa Federal Constituency to Babajide Obanikoro of the All Progressives Congress.
He contested for the same seat in the 2023 elections on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and again lost to the Labour Party (LP) candidate, Attah Thaddeus.
Speaking during a recent interview with Hip TV, Adesua said she was initially “worried” and “disturbed” when the singer revealed his intention to join partisan politics.
She, however, said she later decided to support him because “purpose is more important than fear.”
She said, “When Banky said that he wanted to go into politics, I was a little bit worried and disturbed about it.
“But I also believe that purpose is more important than fear. And I want to see him fulfil purpose. So, he has my support 100 per cent.”
