Singer turned politician, Olubankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W, has promised to publicly publish his salary and allowances if elected to be a legislator.
The singer who is currently contesting for the Eti-Osa House of Representatives with Modern Democratic Party (MDP), made the promise while voicing out his ideas in a heated debate against four other candidates on February 4.
“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.”
