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.

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.
