"I will always play my part in making Nigeria a better place." - Banky

Banky W, a popular Nigerian singer, businessman, and politician has spoken on the view that he may run again for political office in 2023.

The music icon revealed his innermost thoughts when he had a brief chat with DO2DTUN of Cool FM, earlier this week.

The singer, who is loved by many for his songs, said that it may take a while for him to decide if he will run for office, come 2023.

"I’m praying about it," he said, after acknowledging that DO2DTUN asked him the million-dollar question. 

"I have to tell God about it, I have to tell my wife about it. I also need to speak to some other people that I take counsel from. I know that I will always be on the side of the people that are fighting to make this country a better place. 

"I will always be at the forefront, I will always stick my neck out, and I will always play my part in making Nigeria a better place. 

"As to what that means for 2023, I don’t really know the answer to that question yet; if I will be running for House of Reps or running for something else I can't tell now."

When asked if given a chance what he'd like to do to add value to the lives of others, he said if given a chance, the first thing he'll like to change is unemployment. According to him, there are so many young people and not enough jobs to go around. 

"We need to figure out a way to empower business, fostering successful environments where they can hire more people."
