Nigerian singer Bankole Wellington (also known as Banky W) has spoken about his defeat in Lagos state’s Eti Osa federal constituency. He lost the election to Labour Party candidate, Attah Thaddeus.
Attah won the election by 24,075 votes. Banky W however got 18,666 votes and All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate Babajide Obanikoro by 16,901 votes.
However, Effiong described this claim as silly propaganda, claiming that God gave the human brain a just reason.
Reacting on his Instagram page on Monday, Banky W said if things had gone according to plan, he would have travelled to get an apartment and office space in Abuja.
He said faith in God does not mean that you won’t get hurt.
“For anyone who’s ever suffered through a loss, a disappointment or a situation where things just didn’t work out the way you hoped. ‘Faith after a fall’ is for you, for me.
“This was to be our Thanksgiving service. After the election is over and we come and we are celebrating, thanking God. And I was going to give a short charge to say see what the Lord has done.
“And then, we use that to build up your faith and give God some praise. Then we finish the service and I go to Abuja to start looking for apartment and office space.
“Your faith in God does not stop you from hurting, but it helps you heal, and it helps you deal,” he added.
