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:

I strongly demand an ATM machine that gives me a hug and whispers 'Everything will be okay' into my ear each time I check my account balance… pic.twitter.com/sRAfBxxw7k

Go and work joor. Lol!
Saw this "look-gooding" guy, smartly dressed, heading to work or an interview I presume. Then boooooooooooooooommmmmmmm! A speeding vehicle ran into a pothole with water in it and splashed the poor guy all over.
Government needs to fix these bad roads.
— Call Me Saka (@SymplySaka) October 9, 2018
We have been saying this for years. What does it take to build standard roads, or repair bad roads?
For how long do we have to continue asking. We f**king pay tax!!
We can’t even start talking about the people that have died as a result of bad roads or the mental stress we go through on these roads.
When you realise it is impossible for everyone to like anything, you will rest.

4. Bukky Shonibare
My mom resigned from the Nigerian Air Force 24 years ago.
Efforts to process her pension was one of the most difficult and emotionally-sapping period I've seen her endure.
Few days ago, she called me, screaming in joy: 'Anike, mo ti gba alert ooo.'
The relief is indescribable.

Some people will say it is because 2019 is here. At least they paid it. 24 years ago is not child’s play biko. Hopefully, they sustain such an effort.
The Sokoto State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Ibrahim Milgoma on Tuesday said the party will not bow to the pressure that the party’s 2019 election flag-bearer, Alhaji Mannir Dan-iya be substituted for Tambuwal…

But there were reports that Dan-Iya stepped down for Tambuwal?

If ladies stop expecting 'transport' from guys when they visit, perhaps, alot of nonsense will stop
If men start seeing giving 'transport' as courtesy, or because you earn more and can afford to take the burden, perhaps, alot of nonsense will stop
Everyone should go make money

So much sense in just one tweet. But…
7. Temisan Okomi
Bayelsa. Population about 1.8 million with eight LGAs. In March this year, it received N13.2 billion from FAAC. Only Delta & Rivers received more. Yet they owe salaries & pensions for months.
Ain't life just grand?

Life is grand and leadership – in Nigeria – is grand-er.
