Nigerian entertainer turned politician, Banky W, a representative of the Modern Democratic Party (MDP) has vowed to make his earnings as a member of the legislative arm of government, if elected.
He said this at a debate where he spoke against four other candidates in Lagos. According to him, accountability is one of the major problems of government in Nigeria. This, however, is what he says he is willing to change.
Here is what Banky W had to say:
Most of us don’t know who our representatives are, talk less of their salary and allowances and constituency allocations that they receive every year most of the time to enrich themselves.
How I plan to address it myself directly is first of all, I’ll publish what I earn as a legislator my salary, my allowance, the allocation given to Eti-Osa, I will publish it.
We will have town halls and an active constituency office to engage the community to say this is the allocation that we’ve received, this is what we intend to spend it on.
Banky is therefore set to contest against other candidates on the 16th of February. He has since gathered the support of so many celebrities.
