The Twitter user had made a case for the established presenter, who hosted the popular TV game show, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, for 13 years.

The tweet read, “Ebuka don eat small, make him allow another person chop! Frank Edoho as BBNaija host for this season won’t be a bad choice tho. Eviction night go choke gan!!!”

The suggestion sparked a debate, which was finally laid to rest by Edoho via his official Twitter handle.

He tweeted: “What did Ebuka do to deserve all this? Why would you want to change someone that has done a show successfully for only three years and have him replaced with one who did WWTBAM for 13 years? Leave Ebuka alone! Please.”
