I will publish my salary if I become a legislator
Musician/Actor turned politician, Banky W has vowed to publish his salary and earnings if elected as a legislator. Olubankole Wellington (real name) is contesting for the Eti-Osa House of Representatives on the platform of the Modern Democratic Party (MDP).
Banky W made this known while speaking in a 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.”
He also lambasted politicians who go to the National Assembly to enrich themselves without consideration for the masses.
