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 are the ones we saw today:
As Dan Millman said, the secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new. We must build the new Nigeria and the old Nigeria of tribalism and religious strife will give away to a new Nigeria where we are all our brothers keepers.

It should be obvious to all that people in each ethnic group voted for both Buhari & Atiku. Some have started a sick narrative that they will no longer give alms to those they perceive to be “northern” because they “voted Buhari.” Not everyone that carries a smartphone is well.

Tweet of the day! Hands down.
Was having a conversation with a colleague of mine about finances, and how him and his wife approach it without conflict and he said something that gave me pause:
“Get someone has the same approach to money as you do. This is extremely important.”

Some Nigerians could complain about their employers and your favourite contrarian Twitter accounts will still come out to tell them they’re self absorbed idiots who should be grateful for a job.
It’s in the blood.

It’s in our DNA, bro.
The same mentality that demands people to be “grateful” to their parents for birthing and providing for them is the mentality behind erecting billboards to thank governors for paying salaries and building roads.

The same Nigerian brands that spend millions to advertise on Linda Ikeji and Instablog, though they publicly ‘despise’ them are the people that you think want to endorse the alte movement.
