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:
We need to create more opportunities for young people and perhaps some of them will stay away from Yahoo Yahoo. There are no jobs, no hope for tomorrow and many people laugh at folks like us who study and work really hard. I am not justifying fraud. Just saying fix the country.

Pls how many times will the Oshodi interchange be “commissioned”? Asking for a friend..

It says a lot about our culture that as Nigerians we are having a national debate about whether stealing from strangers online is wrong or not. Whether defrauding unsuspecting strangers online is a crime or not. Rationalizing it. Putting it into some fucking “context”.

Party pooper, ugh.
Just left a popular “chicken” eatery in Lagos.
As i was entered, a young lady (Cant be more than 25yrs) was exiting and i held the door for her.
She didnt say thank you or even acknowledge my gesture.
At that moment i understood why Uber drivers sometimes quarrel with ladies.
