2019: Banky W Denies Collecting 57 Million Naira To Support Buhari
Shalom Miriam Shehu has accused singer turned politician Banky W of collecting a sum of 57 million Naira to support President Muhammadu Buhari's second term bid.
Shalom said the singer has converted his EME record company to a PR firm to help Buhari retain the country ’s number one seat.
She made these claims while responding to Banky's comment on the suspension the Chief Justice of Nigeria Walter Onnoghen by the president.
"Your EME Company you converted to PR firm got a contract of N57m through one Abubakar Ahmed to promote Buhari. Why have you not been doing your work?" she said.
Banky W who recently declared an interest to run for a seat at the Federal House of Representatives is contesting under the Eti-Osa constituency.
The accuser claimed to have proof of Banky W's trip to Abuja alongside his wife Adesua Etomi-Wellington, to sign the contract that reportedly earned him N57 million to support Buhari.
In his response, Banky W denied the accusations and asked that she brings proof of the allegation before revealing that he would sue her.

Mr. Wellington, come out and support Buhari with your chest. You can’t be doing this non-partisan shit forever.— Shalom Miriam Shehu (@MiriamShehu) January 26, 2019

FALSE. COMPLETELY false and untrue. I've never met this person, and never collected a dime to do anything for this President. I DARE YOU to show proof of the false stories you are peddling. Why would I be running on an independent party in my own constituency if that was my plan?— Banky Wellington (@BankyW) January 26, 2019
I've called my lawyers, and sent screenshots of the latest lies and slander used against me. I hope the people who posted them are prepared to provide PROOF in court. Shey you have dragged my name in the mud again, you MUST provide proof of your accusations or you will go to jail— Banky Wellington (@BankyW) January 26, 2019
