‘#BudgetOfCorruption, Innoson, Made in Nigeria’ | What Nigerians are saying on Twitter today

The Nigerian Twitter-sphere is alive with various topics and discussions of national interest that are eliciting series of reactions and comments.

Here are the most prominent topics of Tuesday, February 9 and why they are trending.


Nigerians have become increasingly skeptical and cynical about the 2016 budget, which has thrown up series of controversies- owing to the inconsistencies of the inputed figures and dubious allocations.

The Minister of Health’s revelation on Monday- that the budget of his ministry was manipulated- is possibly responsible for renewed interest and subsequent conversation among Nigerians.


Also trending this morning is Yaba- a prominent city in the Lagos metropolis, which is home to some of Nigeria’s finest institutions of learning as well as technology geeks and start-ups.

The Minister of Communication Technology is scheduled to visit Yaba today and also pay a visit to leading technology startup incubator- CC-hub.

Innoson/Made in Nigeria:

The Made in Nigeria conversation came back to the fore on Monday, after Senate President, Bukola Saraki visited the Made-in Aba trade fair, in Abuja.

Innoson, the first Nigerian car manufacturing industry, is at the receiving end of a Twitter-campaign by Nigerians- for Nigerians to patronise locally made products and services.


The federal government, on Monday, signed an MoU with biscuit manufacturer, NASCO, as part of the national feeding program of the current administration.
