Today’s Noisemakers: Dr Aminu Gamawa, Reno Omokri, Tunji Lardner and others [Operation Python Dance edition]

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 matters, 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:

1 Dr Aminu Gamawa

It’s been quite the day on TwitterNG today: tribalism has been at its height; shots have been fired in all directions; it’s been so exhausting, we’re thankful the day has drawn to a close. Hopefully, tomorrow will open to peace, progress and a whole lot of sense.

Until then, Dr Gamawa has made some points about the madness brewing in the East:

2. Reno Omokri

We’re not sure whether this passes for hate speech (Buhari set the paper on red lines; only he has the marking scheme) but we can say that Reno Omokri rather enjoyed writing this thread. He starts out looking like he was rooting for Ezekwesili and winds up rubbing her face in it.

Quick backstory: Oby Ezekwesili had criticised Buhari for being a sectional leader. Garba Shehu shot back that she was being tribalistic, giving Reno Omokri the working tools to make a Karma-has-done-you-in piece.

It’s long, it’s tedious, but he’s a noisemaker so here goes:

Sigh.

 

3. Nze

Speaking of tribalism, Igbos have been on the hot seat today for either not condemning IPOB activities or speaking out against Buhari’s Operation Python Dance II

Cue Seyi:

Away with y’all, Emeka sings.

Mazi Nze wades into the heat and lays it out without mincing words: don’t be the Igbo person that gets suckered. Stay woke and never forget this anecdote:

And fellow Nigerians say:

4. Tunji Lardner

Apparently, there’s this ill-conceived sentiment on Twitter that Igbos are playing the victim. Tunji Larner brought it to our notice.

4. Clarence

So Clarence decided to fact check that.

These other reactions to Mr Lardner’s comments weren’t so civil:

Double sigh.

5. Irene

Nigerians have always made a case for the use of force in settling all conflict. When people talk about a president, one of the characteristics must be a strong man or hard man; sha, someone who won’t take bullshit.

When the military rolled into Abia state in their MRAP tanks, Nigerians said it was okay because Nnamdi Kanu needed to be taught a lesson that Nigeria is not a zoo.

Irene thinks this is a mentality we need to shed:

Preach!

 

6. Ayo Sogunro

The Nigerian Army has been as active on Twitter as it has on the battleground in Abia state. Ayo Sogunro called them to order on this one:

7. Rotimi Fawole

So the Nigerian Army in its own power has adjudged IPOB a terrorist organization, leaving even lawyers confused.

In conclusion…

8. Wry

Wry takes Irene’s entreaty further. He suggests alternatives the FG could have taken:

9. Kayode Ogundamisi

After putting Nnamdi Kanu on blast for so long, TwitterNG saw fit to put Ogundamisi on roast. Former OPC Secretary was forced to confront his past and make explanations for them, however halting.

[The attack]: Kayode Ogundamisi was once an Nnamdi Kanu | TwitterNG shows receipts

[The response]: “I owe Igbos a duty not to be misled” | Ogundamisi replies

 

10. Stephanie Hegarty

President Buhari will be visiting his med vac location again.

Reactions:

Abi na.
