 Tweeps react to PDP s decision on Banky W Reps ticket

Days after his victory at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary election in Lagos, there are claims that singer, Banky W, may not be the party’s candidate for the Eti-Osa Federal Constituency, Lagos.

In a viral video late Monday, Banky W got 28 votes out of the 31 votes cast at the primary election.

However, reports on social media of the result submitted at the PDP headquarters in Abuja suggest that the singer may have lost his ticket.

Reacting to the report, former presidential aspirant, Oby Ezekwesili tweeted, “Just when you think we’ve seen all the shenanigans these folks can do. What happened to Banky W’s win of the Primary? I detest those two-peas-in-a-pod Parties but the young man worked hard for his win. Too sad. ”

Popular doctor, Chinonso Egemba aka aproko doctor, in confusion asked, “I thought Banky W won the ticket. Didn’t we all watch a video of votes being counted?”

Another tweep, FS Yusuf asked, “Wadata House is a house of wonders eh. How will they wake up and tell us Banky W didn’t win the primaries after we saw video of his victory count???”

Morris Monye tweeted, “There is actual video of Banky W votes being counted which was definitely above 7. Then few magic wands later with abracadabra, he is no longer declared winner and this result sheet turn up with him being defeated. What is going on here?”

When our correspondent contacted the Lagos PDP Publicity Secretary, Hakeem Amode and asked whether Banky W was still the party’s candidate, he said, “Yes”. Amode however added, “There are issues. That’s what I’m trying to find out.”

As of the time of this report, calls and message sent to the singer were not responded to.

Two Signs APC Still Not Ready to Govern After Buhari By Farooq Kperogi It’s OK to despise PDP and Atiku Abubakar. I do, too. But the truth is that, of Nigeria’s major political parties, only PDP has shown a readiness to govern at the national level from day one. We may not like how they’ll govern, but they’re at least coherent, earnest, transparent, and predictable. The party held its convention on schedule and submitted the name of its vice presidential candidate to INEC on deadline–with little or no internal rancor. APC, on the other hand, needed to extend the date of its convention by one week. Even so, it almost asked for another extension, and its poorly conducted convention spilled over to the following day. It also couldn’t turn in the name of its vice presidential candidate to INEC on deadline and instead submitted a “placeholder,” a vexing political anomaly Nigeria hadn’t witnessed before, which smaller parties have sadly quickly copied. That bespeaks a disorganized, ramshackle, “fire-brigade,” spur-of-the-moment, not-ready-for-prime-time political party. No party can effectively govern a sick, complex country like Nigeria with such indiscipline, insouciance, and planlessness. Should the party be voted into power in 2023, given its aggravating indiscipline and incompetence in organizing a mere convention and appointment a running mate to its presidential candidate, you can bet that it will repeat Buhari’s template of delaying the appointment of ministers and constituting boards of government agencies by several months. Or worse. We all know how that turned out for Buhari–and Nigeria. Governance never took off, directionlessness took over, a recession hit, and the economy tanked. The country hasn’t recovered up to now. It seems indecision, indiscipline, impunity, and ineptitude are inescapably inserted into APC’s DNA. For example, after its delegates convention, the party is now busy removing the names of people who won primary elections and replacing them with the names of party hon honchos who didn’t participate in the primaries. It is said that indecision is the graveyard of good intentions. APC doesn’t even have good intentions to start with. So, it’s burdened with a double whammy of indecision and no intentions.L
