Okon who is also an Obi supporter argued that those in his camp are not bullying others but simply expressing their strong reservations against those who do not want the betterment of the country.

“If you come out and we are only cyberbullying you and there’s no civil war, we have tried. This is 200 and something million people, we have not broken. Do you know what we have seen? We are very angry,” Okon said.

"I'm Obidient but honestly IT IS BULLYING AND WRONG to attack anyone else just because they're not. You can encourage them to see reasons with you. They are convinced of their choice just as you are convinced of yours. It is not your violence towards them that will change their minds ."

"Nedu is right. 6 is 9 depending on your perspective. Buhari was painted a savior too. But see where we are. Let people support their candidates. But preach the message of POssibilities abeg."

nedu_wazobiafm said:

"The whole premise of democracy is the right to choose your candidate ... Whether that choice is seen as right or wrong by another person shouldn't create the opportunity for cyber bullying. At the end of the day we all want Nigeria to work. Vote not fight."
