A vote for Fela Durotoye is a vote for Buhari, you better wake up!

Not a fan of Fela Durotoye but he has done the right thing, by joining a party (ANN) and putting himself forward… That’s what the Constitution says.. Not some RED CARD or Coalition thing that has no bearing. Wish him all the best. pic.twitter.com/yvk7zP3f50

Let’s have options besides Buhari and Atiku
Let’s have a real election

I don’t know why you guys are talking about the Fela Durotoye for President nonsense. That shit is dead on arrival. The guy can’t even win the Polling booth in his village.
Let us talk about how we are voting Buhari out and ignore the sidepiece that Durotoye is.

On Fela Durotoye, it is great that he has decided to run for office of the President of Nigeria. Allowing himself be reduced to Motivational Speaker in the last 6 weeks reduced his milage a lot. His handlers need to point to his decade long experience of Management Consulting.

Apparently, Fela Durotoye believes “Buhari’s economic management saved Nigeria’s economy”.
He is not getting my vote.
In fact, he isn’t going anywhere – so I won’t even bother myself with him.

If Fela Durotoye joins PDP or APC today and the party presents him for their Presidential candidate, the same people talking trash about him will EMBRACE him.

I like the fact that Fela Durotoye is running for office as president…it’s nice and that’s all it is NICE.
What I don’t like is the idiots deceiving him…
Fela is not ready for it and Nigeria is not ready for Fela.
Run in your local area and make impact. Start from there.

Scenes when Fela Durotoye wins the 2019 elections, locks up your favorite messiah for corruption and arrests everybody that has worked for NEPA from 95 till date

Asides from being a motivational speaker, I don’t really know anything about Fela Durotoye but I’ll pick him if the options are Buhari and that fabric, I don’t care about him not holding a post before, we already gambled with the gap toothed fraud

It appears Fela Durotoye was against subsidy removal.
We really need to understand his views on economics.
