Nigerians React As Banky W Loses To Thaddeus Attah

The Labour Party’s Thaddeus Attah won the House of Representatives position representing the Eti-Osa Federal Constituency on Sunday, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

At the polls, Mr. Attah triumphed over well-known singer Bankole Wellington, also known as Banky W, and Babjide, the son of Musiliu Obanikoro, a former secretary of state for defense.

Funmilayo Odukoya, the INEC Returning Officer, declared Mr. Attah the winner on Sunday at the Collation Centre, Lagos State Model Nursery and Primary School, Marwa, Lekki 1.

“That Thaddeus Attah of LP, having satisfied the law requirement, is now declared the winner and is returned elected, signed by me. Thank you so much,” she said.

Mr. Attah won with 24,075 votes, beating his counterparts, Mr. Olubankole Wellington (Banky W) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who had 18,666 votes, and Mr. Babjide Obanikoro of the APC, who had 16, 901 votes.

BVAS Complaint

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that there was a dispute regarding the validity of the results before INEC officials officially announced the results. This occurred even before the presiding officer spoke.

Representatives from the APC and PDP declined to acknowledge the results announcement until their issues were resolved.

Aderemi Adeshina, a PDP agent, alleged that some voters were disenfranchised in some polling units in the LGA in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Additionally, Mr. Adeshina asserted that the BVAS system did not transmit results that were logged in some units following the elections.

Nigerians React to Banky W’s Loss

The ten-over-ten singer and husband to famous actress Adesua Etomi was contesting for the third time in the House of Representatives.

Unfortunately, he lost a second time since he began his political career.

Banky W’s fans were shocked at the election outcome and attributed his loss to not joining the Labour Party.
