@Nsa20 “The real expired milk is Bola Tinubu and just from today he started reaping what he sowed 2 days ago and from Saturday when Nigeria Decides the next President, he will regret insulting a leader like Obasanjo who outperformed them.”
@Stevoks “That is what happens when you insult your elder. Total humiliation to him and the APC crew.”
@TheSarakist “Only God know what is happening to APC from Kwara to Ogun it is intense drama and booing competition. Even Tinubu is throwing away the symbol of poverty, the APC flag before the stones find their way to him.”
@The_Jonathanian “Fellow Nigerians, It’s all over for APC.Jagaban Tinubu was so distraught by the monumental disgrace his party met I was Ogun State that he threw away his party flag in anger and disgust.”
@Govsia “Ogun APC rally marred by protests, Buhari asks voters to vote for candidates of their choice. Oshiomhole, Amaechi, Aregbesola booed, stoned, Bola Tinubu escapes through backdoor.”
@Najeebbello “Amosun should have reined his thugs from attacking Oshiomhole, Tinubu, and Dapo Abiodun. If a single projectile had struck the President, no one knows how serious things would have gotten. It’s obvious APC has lost Ogun. “
@givet “Ogun APC rally in shambles.Tinubu just showed us by throwing the flag in this video how Buhari and his cohorts will be thrown out of Aso rock this weekend.”
