@carlos_el primero: It’s unbelievable that Obi’s supporters are this vitriolic! don’t care who comes into power but people should stop treating this as a matter of life and death. It’s sickening.
@stanonebo85: Want thing with some of you people here is that double standard is killing u people. When P Square brothers supported Peter Obi, u guys especially Lagos indigenes insulted them called them names, asking them to leave Lagos, bullied them went as far as going to their village to take picture of their late father old duplex. Nobody saw that as been unfair. Whoever should come for justice must come with clean hands. Double standard everywhere. People acting as if they are been victimized nonsense.
@omoolamubo: Yes ooo support whoever with ur full chest maami open comments section EPE wa nle,we go curse there generations they are forming saints as if their candidates has not been part of the system for long…las las IG go commot Naija
@omobababk: She is and will always remain an Icon. Anyone that cannot deal with the beauty of choice which is guaranteed in Democracy should stop following her in peace. Enough of all the cyber bullying in the name of supporting a particular candidate.
Use your PVC when the time comes and stop harassing people for not aligning with your choice.
@adeola_kola:wonder why some people are trolling her. She has a right to vote for who she wants just like they have theirs. Kilode
@owelle_chima: You people are the same. You are in PDP but your mind is in APC because of Asiwaju.
@bayupumping: People should be confident about their choice without being bullied.
@kings_lifestyl: Posting this by itself is ridiculous. Why are you fanning the flame to inferno?
