@RealOlaUduah “ Those ex @NGSuperEagles footballers that visited and tacitly endorsed Tinubu for money, are MORALITY DREGS. Never allow money or lack of it to bind your conscience. Those men are supposed to be role models to our youth, but they failed woefully at it for the love of easy lucre!

@TundeAdeparusi “When money suddenly finds its way into your pocket unexpectedly, the experience can be so intoxicating. Election time is their season to make money from desperate politicians. Let Mr West enjoy it while it lasts.”

@Zikobility “ Taribo West, all of you ex-internationals supporting what will bring tears later, God’s watching you. I heard JJ and Papilo also went to his house yesterday and I know money must be involved for them to have endorsed him. God dey.”

@SodiqTade “ Buhari’s selling point in 2014 was poverty and it worked on Nigerians. Tinubu’s selling point is to weaponize poverty. He proposed cassava and maize theory, and now he is trying to buy over celebrities and Nigeria soccer legends. I can’t really blame people like Taribo West, Kanu for this ridiculous session. It is simply their time to cash out.”

@Jefe_says “I won’t send Taribo West, but I’m greatly disappointed in Kanu and Okocha. Especially Kanu. I don’t know how much Tinubu gave them, but I’m very sure they are richer than Falz and Macaroni, but these two would never sell their souls like this.”


@Oyindamola “ Omoh, I don’t even know much about Taribo west lately aside from being a pastor or whatever, but what’s Kanu doing? Mumu Papilo! Even that shameless Okocha!! All those betting endorsements he signed no do am ? I’m utterly disappointed in them all !! It’s a shame.”

@Hormohlolu “ I’m so happy Taribo West is one of those praying for Tinubu. We all know what happens when Taribo prays for you.”
