"In all these, I pity Fubara and those openly supporting him. They are gone."

Another user, @CrimeCrack, believes only Makinde can win the election in all of them. He said:

"Bunch of politically irrelevant clowns apart from Seyi Makinde, none of them can win any election in his state. The worst of them all is Ortom. These are people who ordinarily should be on the same wanted list with Yahaya Bello."

Amazing Dray said the rumour that Seyi Makinde was no longer in the camp has been debunked. He wrote:

"I think they said Seyi has left them. Believe these people at your own risk."

Mehdi commented:

"PDP is completely gone."

Another user with the handle @OyedemiBabs said:

"Fubara River State leader wike Abuja PDP leader. Abeg, who will go solve the problem now?"
