Describing his political aspiration as something bigger than him, Banky W said he got into PDP to make reforms.

He said:

“It’s a question of learning over the last few years… that we have to engage with Nigeria where it is, not where we want it to be.

“At the end of the day, we can’t be content with just shouting from the sidelines. We can realize that some of us have to infiltrate the system, some of us have to get in to the major platforms that exists and reform even those platforms.
