Popular Nigerian actress, Adesua Etomi, has revealed that she became terrified when her husband, Bankole Wellington nicknamed Banky W, told her he wanted to go into politics.

Adesua admitted that she was immediately concerned and frightened by his declaration.

In a recent interview with Hip TV, she added that she later chose to support him because “purpose is more important than fear.”

Recall that on November 11, 2018, Banky declared his intention to run on the Modern Democratic Party’s platform for the Eti-Osa Federal Constituency seat.

He lost to Babajide Obanikoro of the All Progressives Congress on and ran for the same seat in the 2023 elections on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, but lost to the Labour Party (LP) candidate, Attah Thaddeus.

She said;

“When Banky said that he wanted to go into politics, I was a little bit worried and disturbed about it.

But I also believe that purpose is more important than fear. And I want to see him fulfil purpose. So, he has my support 100 per cent.”
