@AdaAwgbu_ said, “Peter Obi in the last three months, has given Nigeria more public image boost than all our Ministers of Information and Foreign Affairs put together have done in the last ten years.”

@UzoanyaP said, “The best time to be called a Nigerian was in 1960. Another best time is now! Peter Obi has filled up my pot of hope for a better Nigeria. #PeterObionCNN.”

@ennyola0015 said: “Zain Asher Ejiofor is an Igbo girl, Enugu State precisely. You don’t expect a fair interview from someone with an interest.” .

@DanielRegha also stated that, “Peter Obi did not state how he intends to fix Nigeria, all he said are already known and has been said by candidates before him. Giving speeches is on thing, but taking action is another. Furthermore, his performance as a governor in Anambra is greatly overrated. No offense.”
