Fela Durotoye beating Kingsley Moghalu is the most surprising thing I’ve heard today…. it speaks volumes though.

We are not realistic in Nigeria. I think them Fela Durotoye think they can pull a surprise. These guys won't get 1 million votes. I noticed they have been using the France election as yardstick for this their daydreaming season. Not going to happen in Nigeria

How is Fela Durotoye the consensus candidate and not Kingsley Moghalu? Are you people serious about this election at all?

With respect, that is a monumental mistake. While they all have little chance of winning, Kingsley Moghalu’s has engaged and his message has resonated with more people. He has been visible unlike Fela Durotoye who thinks sphewing some Mahatma Ghandi motivational quotes helps. https://t.co/suUu0fBGX5

Fela Durotoye is the man. Aspire to perspire to acquire and refire. When you vex-pire, you don't retire. You refire your desire to require, acquire and chop-tire.
