Fayose set to leave the PDP?
Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose has threatened to “renounce the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)”, barely 24 hours after the party’s National Convention that saw former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar emerge as presidential candidate.
Fayose, who has been notably silent recently, has not said why he intends to leave the party or where he will go from there but he has said “after consultations, I will speak clearly to Nigerians.”
Will Fayose decamp to the APC, a party he clearly has no love for, the party that houses his chief enemy, President Muhammadu Buhari? Only time will tell.
While we wait, here’s what social media users think:
Fayose can’t never join APC. He would rather be partyless.

Because Fayose’s plan to be VP didn’t work and their plan failed, he’s now making noise.

Burna Boy sold out the O2 Arena but his fans need to shut up about it
Dancehall act, Burna Boy is widely loved for his unique talent and quality music.
He recently held a sold out concert at the O2 Arena, London and the event has gotten rave reviews from enthusiasts and attendees.
But according to some social media users, and especially Wizkid’s fans, selling out the O2 is not that big a feat. Wizkid did it, even Small Doctor did.
See the conflicting reactions to Burna Boy’s overdue victory:
Burna Boy sold out 02 academy last night even with amazing performances .
High time we accept he’s on the same level with Davido and wizkid . Haters will say I’m reaching , but I’m sure burnaboy fans will be so proud of this lad ⭐👑 pic.twitter.com/L8doe2Q75n

We’ve got to protect Burna Boy at all costs. He’s a National treasure.

The ones who can’t fathom the hype
Burna Boy has the potential to be a great artiste. But currently, he’s being overrated.
He hasn’t even matched Runtown in terms of musical influence.

Y’all swear burna boy is on the same level wit wit davido and wizkid but he’s so far behind them it hurts, wit all that talents he’s got he should be far ahead of both, inconsistent and doesn’t put in enough work.

But ‘ordinary’ Small Doctor sold out the O2 already:
I don’t understand o, is this 02 academy not the same venue Yemi Alade, small doctor sold out? The celebration wasnt like this of burna boy, Tiwa savage sold out 02 at indigo, Wizkid sold out 02 Arena, indigo is bigger than academy, Arena is bigger than indigo you know.
