In a recent interview with Chude Jideonwo, Banky W described his political aspiration as something bigger than him, adding that he joined the PDP to make reforms.

He said:

It’s a question of learning over the last few years… that we have to engage with Nigeria where it is, not where we want it to be.

“At the end of the day, we can’t be content with just shouting from the sidelines. We can realize that some of us have to infiltrate the system, some of us have to get in to the major platforms that exist and reform even those platforms.

“So this is bigger than – and I say this with all sincerity and with all honesty – that it’s much bigger than me trying to get a seat in the House of Reps.”
