On Wednesday, the singer arrived Osogbo for a mega rally donning PDP regalia. Davido thrilled the teeming crowd to dance moves alongside his equally energetic uncle. He also urged attendees and PDP faithful to come with their permanent voter cards (PVCs) to the venue of the rallies.

But some Nigerians have raised concerns over his absence from the National Youth Service orientation exercise, which ended on Monday. Davido, 26, was one of the 2,152 Batch ‘B’ Stream II corps members sworn-in at the NYSC orientation camp, Ipaja in August.

Some Nigerians have also taken to social media to express divergent views over what they describe as Davido’s repeated flouting of NYSC policies.
