Nigerian singer and candidate for the Modern Democratic Party (MDP), Banky W has taken to Instagram to call out the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for misspelling his name and misprinting his party’s logo.
Banky W who is currently contesting for Federal House Of Representatives in Lagos said, “It turns out that logo that will show for MDP on the election day ballot papers is wrong. We have tried every possible option to see if the ballot papers can be reprinted, but that is unfortunately not possible. So we move on’.
He went on to say, ‘ no sense crying over spilt milk. The good news is WE ARE ON THE BALLOT. You will see “Modern Democratic party” on the ballot with this new logo… so PLEASE help us repost the logo everywhere. We are also reprinting as much campaign material as we can. We will not be deterred by any obstacle. We will not be discouraged. We will focus on the finish line and forge ahead. No weakness.
No regrets. My last name was also misspelt, but that’s a non-issue because you won’t see candidate names on election day, just party names, acronyms, and logos. Please remember the Modern Democratic Party. God bless you.”
