After the Vice presidential debate of yesterday, as expected, Nigerians especially those active on the social media, have expressed opinions in what seemed like spectators debate over which candidate made more sense.
While some were of the opinion that Obi was unable to counterbalance Osinbajo as a result of deviation from questions and occasional stutters, others said that Osinbajo was a talkative who didn’t know when to shut up.
A twitter user wrote; “Obi is just stammering and deviating from questions thrown at him, as if he crammed what to say regardless of questions that may come. Osinbajo no be him mate. it’s not surprising that his tribesmen are celebratinf him for making no sense. they never mean well for their own. i can’t imagine Nigeria having an unintelligent man with a Davido voice as vice president”
Another replied saying; “Osinbajo is talking too much, more like empty barrel lon kpariwo. O ma se o, Peter Obi killed his closing remarks, therefore, he is the winner.”
Focus was especially on Obi’s reference to Buhari’s witch hunt of corrupt persons with the anecdote of a shop owner and a robber, and the clap back from Osinbajo.

However, the candidates of YPP, ACPN and ANN were considered clueless, hence attention was focused on the actual rivals in the persons of Peter Obi from the PDP and Professor Yemi Osinbajo of the APC.
