See as Nigerians reacted to the sudden turn in event
@LekanAdigun, “I heard Dino was crushed finally today. Even though I don’t like Smart Adeyemi, I’m happy he lost because of his nuisance behaviour and the overconfidence of someone like Otitoju.”
@oewonah, “Dino was the last man speaking for the people, sadly they got him out. We’ll all endure the nonsense called the 9th Senate.”
