Watch Banky's powerful speech declaring interest in House of Reps seat [Video]
Banky lifted the spirit of the audience who attended his declaration with a message of hope and collective responsibility.
The singer's touching speech at the gathering made sure to rule out a reliance on a godfather. There won't be room for one, not even on his presentation slides.
"I have to tell you I am under no illusion that this is going to be easy.
"Considering who we are going against, some think that it is impossible. They said we don't have money to run, we said our strength is in our numbers.
"They say we don't have the structure, we say we will attempt to build it.
"They say what if you lose? I say what if we win?!," the crowd roars from a hall as Banky's speech hits a momentum.
He continues to more comments about hope. The singer places more confidence as opposed to a godfather figure.
"So while we may not have a godfather, we have God.
"And we have intellectual capacity and integrity and the right intentions. And last but not least, we have a whole lot of hope.
"At the end of the day, hope may very well be all that we have. But I truly believe that it is all we need.
"Thank you and God bless Nigeria. And God bless Eti-Osa," the singer ends his address and strolls of stage while a crowd cheers.
At the event his wife, Adesua also showed confidence in him when she told the audience that Nigeria needs a man like Banky.
She shares this moments before welcoming him to the stage.
