Popular Nigerian singer and songwriter, Banky W (Olubankole Wellington), has come out to deny comments made by a Twitter user who accused him of collecting the sum of N57 million to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s second bid for the presidency.
A Nigerian lady with the name Shalom Miriam Shehu on the micro-blogging outfit, had alleged that the entertainer, who is contesting for a seat at the House of Representatives in 2019, received the huge cash to run adverts for Mr President.
In a series of tweets on Saturday, January 26, Miriam claimed she has evidence of the transaction between Mr Banky W and the campaign organization of President Buhari.
“Mr. Wellington, come out and support Buhari with your chest. You can’t be doing this non-partisan shit forever.
Your EME Company you converted to PR firm got a contract of N57m through one Abubakar Ahmed to promote Buhari. Why have you not been doing your work?”
In another tweet, she wrote:
“I have a picture of you and your wife traveling to Abuja via Arik Air in December where the contract was signed. Your client paid for the Business class that you and Adesuwa traveled with that day. The trip was on a Sunday morning. I dare you to deny this.”
The singer, who appeared not in the mood to allow the allegations thrive, issued an instant rebuttal on the social media outlet.
His words: “FALSE. COMPLETELY false and untrue. I’ve never met this person, and never collected a dime to do anything for this President. I DARE YOU to show proof of the false stories you are peddling. Why would I be running on an independent party in my own constituency if that was my plan?”
Still not satisfied, Banky W disclosed that “I can’t spend time engaging in a Twitter war with people who clearly don’t care about facts and truth, and prefer to push slander and lies because it makes for juicy news, regardless of who they need to drag in the dirt.”
“I’ve called my lawyers, and sent screenshots of the latest lies and slander used against me. I hope the people who posted them are prepared to provide PROOF in court. Shey you have dragged my name in the mud again, you MUST provide proof of your accusations or you will go to jail”
