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. We make it our job to take down the names of these noisemakers.
Here’s our list from today:

Of course. Ganduje's video was doctored. Saraki's audio was doctored. Strange how "Doctors" in other fields are so efficient, but the ones in hospitals can't even get syringes to do their work… https://t.co/u9pa7HofYz

It’s time the youths of this great nation come together in one voice and stand against this wicked elders called politicians. Forget all the empty promises, The truth is none of them care about us.

Nice idea. But we cannot just come together and start fighting the “wicked elders”.
They might not care but we need to understand ‘deeply’ why we are fighting and what we hope to achieve thereafter – also to make a plan to sustain whatever process for progress.

By far the best decision I have made in my adult life, was to wait until I found my wife. People will pressure you and try to make you feel inadequate or incomplete.. all because you're not living according to their own mental timetable. Ignore them. Focus on your journey, your happiness, and on making yourself a better person. My prayer is that you will discover, like I did, that the right person is worth waiting for. Mrs W… I'm still amazed that I get to call you mine. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for building with me. Thank you for believing in me and for inspiring me to be a better man. My purpose partner, my rock, my destiny, my Shug, my wife, my life… Happy tradiversary Skuu. Love you SCATTER. 😍😭🙌🏽😩 #BAAD2017 #BAAD2018
Awwww… Amen (My prayer is that you will discover like I did, that the right person is worth waiting for) and Amen.
If you've watched your wife go through pregnancy, childbirth and the early stages of childcare but you still lack empathy for her, I'm sorry to say this but you're a monster.

Don’t be sorry to say it, don’t say it at all.
We can admonish people without giving them names.

Don’t be too hard on yourself, you’re doing the best you can.

Hmmmm… thank you Omotayo.
But we can also strive to do better.
6. Jide Taiwo
Mr Jide needs to speak louder on this.
Nigerians don’t have to choose between two evils. If Buhari has failed, Atiku definitely isn’t the answer. And the #Atikulate whitewashing is pure hogwash.

This argument pops up every election period – “this one looks like he will be better, so let’s vote for him”.
Abegiii, we need to change that orientation.

I used to be scared of one of uncle because I heard he belonged to a frat when he was in school. He was no 2 back then in university befr He finished, according to the story. I lost that fear the day I saw him standing on chair while his wife was running after a rat in the house.
