Nigerian musician, Bankole Wellington aka Banky W, has won the Peoples Democratic Party’s primary election rerun in Eti-Osa Federal Constituency, Lagos.
Mr Wellington won the election with 24 votes against his challenger Sam Aiboni, who scored only five votes.
The re-run was scheduled for today after the first primary last month was cancelled.
The primary was rescheduled after a dispute between Wellington and Aiboni compelled the party’s leadership to intervene from Abuja. It was subsequently decided that a rerun should be held.
Mr Wellington had also won the initial ballot with 27 votes to two against Mr Aiboni, a Lagos businessman.
