Every day on the Nigerian internet, there are people who keep our eyes glued to our phone screens as we read their rants, opinions, perspectives on political and social issues, etc. Sometimes, they are just downright ridiculous.
A large chunk of the funny tweets today were inspired by the dramatic events that occurred during the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) probe in the House of Representatives. In a viral video, the Acting Managing director of the NDDC, Daniel Pondei had slumped while he was being interrogated by the House of Representatives members for the misuse of N81 billion. The incidence soon became meme-worthy.
Here’s a roundup of the best we saw:
