Empire Mates Entertainment honcho turned politician Bankole Wellington has explained how he had to deal with diabolical threats while he contested for election into House of Representatives to represent Eti-Osa federal constituency.
The rookie politician who contested under the platform of the Modern Democratic Party, MDP, revealed his experience in his debut onslaught as candidate contesting for election during an interview.
He said; “I did have some very mind-boggling experiences, and I can honestly say that it’s sad how much of a do-or-die affair politics is to some people. However, that can never, and will never be me.

“If I’m ever going to get into office, it will totally be because of the grace of God, the will of the community, the strength of my vision and willingness to work hard for it. Anything outside that is simply not for me.
“We received some small diabolical threats, but I always believed that ‘greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world’, so I was never scared, not for one second because I knew God would always protect His own,” he added.
