Viral tweets just make Twitter utterly delightful; so we thought to curate our top 10 (there’s a bonus and then some) from last week. Some of the tweets will have you shedding a tear; others will make you bowl over with laughter; altogether they’ll give you an idea about what Twitter talked about during the week.
Based on ‘popular’ demand
President @MBuhari has just announced his intention to seek the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and contest for a second term of Office in the 2019 elections.

Mr Lecturer, the latest
Nigeria is a VERY TOUGH place to be a WOMAN! This Professor in this RECORDED phone call ALLEGEDLY requested for FIVE SEX DATES (Not 5 rounds o) to upgrade the FEMALE student from 'Fail.' Admitted he'd DONE IT with a couple of other FEMALE STUDENTS. Justice MUST BE SERVED! pic.twitter.com/c1N1gob6Oi

Affirming education sabotage
I remain persuaded that d total collapse of University, Secondary, and Primary education in Nigeria is by design. The rot is purposed. If you intend to run Nigeria d way her political elite has run her since 1999, the last thing u need is a properly educated, informed citizenry.

Take a slap and don’t scream
Sometimes, I wonder how our people think, or rather DON’T think. When you raise fees by 500% overnight, is it that you don’t expect protests or that you don’t care whether or not there are protests? Is it naivety or arrogance? Either one is a bad attribute in governance.

Unmarried = Unfit?
I wonder why we have that nonsense perspective in this country that an unmarried person is not responsible enough to handle senior positions
You want a honest hardworking man but you’re also holding him to the financial standard of a Yahoo Boy. Lol.
I don’t think you understand what honest hardwork means, especially in Nigeria. Maybe because you don’t work for your own money.

Before you buy that ‘brand-new’ Tokunbo
Please I beg you guys in God's name, before you buy a Tokunbo car in Nigeria get the VIN and send to me. I'll pull up the history for you for FREE. A lot of people are paying so much for unsafe vehicles. RT for the next person to see this. Thank you.

This en-Q-uiry is… quality
The word "Queue" is just Q followed by four silent letters.
The question is, are the silent letters waiting in line for their turn? pic.twitter.com/01QypTBHln

Kid with incredible shoulders
"How my son wanted to spend the $120 he saved this year. Saturday morning, my son walked into my room and said he wanted to use his money to help the homeless. I asked him what he had in mind, and he said he wanted to make them lunches."
Say something about this kid please… pic.twitter.com/oeZfccPt3V

And to the sober Anniversary we shouldn’t be having…
FOUR YEARS TOO LONG!!
A school should be a place of safety.
Four years ago, 276 girls were snatched from their secondary school in Chibok, Nigeria.
More than 100 are yet to return.

The truth will do you in
Tomorrow, I will be tweeting rare insights on the rest of the #ChibokGirls in captivity. How many are alive and the need for the parents to know the truth, no matter how unpleasant the revelation is.

15/ Today, my painstaking investigations on the #Chibokschoolgirls revealed that just a handful of the 113 #ChibokGirls are alive. Many of the girls have died as a result of cross fires and bombardments of the security forces that no doubt were intent on rescuing them.
— Ahmad Salkida (@A_Salkida) April 14, 2018
16/ I regret to state here that only 15 out of the 113 #Chibokgirls are alive today, based on my investigations in the last 3 months and we have already seen some of them in a video, which I exclusively obtained and was published on SR website.
