@Ismaeeelmuhd: She wanted to be deputy governor as a side hustle. You need to put some skin in the game if you want success.

@reosky10: She did the right thing She wanted to serve the people, since she was not elected to serve it’s not a crime to continue her usual life… No be do or die affair, na thieves dae see am like do or die.

@larryumolo: Yes, I don’t blame her, because politics, especially the Nigerian version of it is extremely dirty and evil. Let us not even mention the Lagos version of it.

@MbamaliVin:  Now that we cannot remove bad leaders through the ballot and they don’t resign, now that the military and police supervise violence and thuggery during election, now that the judiciary always endorse these election criminalities, WHAT IS NEXT?

@bovstudiosng: Lagos now has a serious opposition party in LP. We have the numbers, we just need to match their intimidation and thuggery with a more robust defensive approach. Time will tell.

@jayfit_Ola: So poor and bad of her to loose so woefully, even LP seems more valuable and recognized then her this period …… , she can’t even pull a crowd from her film 🎥 industry. Anyways she’s still a little baby in the game.

@aderosco1 : She just confirmed what Fayose said last two weeks, the her and Jandor were not serious.

@TachaAda : She will wish she waited for the Ellu p movement before opting to support PDP. now she will probably join/support the APC camp.
