Nigerian singer cum politician, Banky W, who is contesting for the Eti-Osa House of Representatives seat under the Modern Democratic Party, has promised to publish his earnings if elected as a legislator.
The statement was made by the singer during a debate against other candidates in Lagos on Monday.
Banky W claimed that accountability is one of the biggest problems in governance and hopes if voted in he can change the situation.
He promises to publish his salary and allowances as a legislator and be transparent in the spending of constituency allocations by consulting regularly with the people. He said;
“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.”
