Today’s Noisemakers: Ebube, Feyi Fawehinmi, Demola Olarewaju and others [The Atiku-El Rufai 2019 debate]

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 @Yemzine

Best pictorial imagery.

Yes, since Mama Taraba- our able Minister for Women Affairs- publicly declared for Atiku, TwitterNG has been on fire.

2. Mark Essien

The entrepreneur did not miss a beat when he point blank trumpeted: “Atiku would be the worst thing to happen to Nigeria”.

Of course, TwitterNG came for him, clubs and daggers swinging. Oh, and Atiku took down a peg & 10 some tweep who thought to smear his name with unsubstantiated claims. There’s been a lot of theatrics on Political Twitter today, and it’s just beginning. Catch all the action here.

3. Feyi Fawehinmi

Whilst Mark Essien was leading TwitterNG to say no to Atiku 2019, Feyi Fawehinmi was at the front of the pack, urging Nigerians to say yes to President El Rufai, all because he’s “partial to El Rufai”.

This time around, Twitter pulled out his 2015 APC receipts. They did quite a number on him, forcing him to do a 360 and apologise. You tell me whether his apology rings true.

Ikechukwu thinks Feyi is a “hireling”

4. Ebube

Ebube and many PDP supporters have someone else in mind for 2019:

5. Cheta Nwanze

Cheta is disinterested in who should or should not be a 2019presidential contender- for now. He’s more interested in the powers that be that can turn things on a dime. In this administration, that will be Saraki.

He did a whole thread about it. We titled it “Saraki will change the game in 2019”.

Get a front row seat, guys.

6. Charles

There’s a whiff of disappointment wafting out from Charles’ thoughts as he ponders what in the world we are doing fielding candidates like El Rufai and Atiku for 2019


7. Alfred

It’s not yet 2019 and we already have catchy political expressions at hand. This one was made popular by Feyi. It’s called “filter”. Brother was simply saying people should filter the candidates coming through, namely Buhari and Atiku.

Make no mistake, the battle lines are being drawn already and it’s party against party (in other words, APC Vs PDP). So when it seemed that Feyi was going to do great damage to the image of Atiku, the opposition came out to disclose the inside game.


8. Afrispheric

Nigerians are speaking up against an El Rufai presidency. People remember how the governor of Kaduna state handled the Southern Kaduna herdsmen crisis, not to mention the way he blabbed about Jonathan, accusing him of all sorts.

According to @afrispheric, El Rufai is not what Nigeria needs. They break down what Nigeria needs below- it’s a tall order.


9. Adeniran

Based on the criteria Stanley and others have produced for Nigeria’s next president, some Nigerians can see Peter Obi, Dankwambo and Lamido fitting the mould, others think we are on a long tin.

So the story continues tomorrow….

That you can bet on.
