However, she later chose to support him because she believes that purpose is more important than fear.
It can be recalled that on November 11, 2018, Banky announced his intention to run for the Eti-Osa Federal Constituency seat on the platform of the Modern Democratic Party.
He ran for the same seat in the 2023 elections under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), but unfortunately lost to the Labour Party (LP) candidate, Attah Thaddeus.
Adesua expressed her initial worries and disturbances about Banky’s decision to go into politics. However, she emphasized that she believes in the importance of fulfilling one’s purpose and that he has her full support.
“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 his purpose. So, he has my support 100 per cent.”
