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. Aisha Yesufu
You remember the 2 million march by the group Youth Earnestly Ask for Abacha under the direction of Daniel Kanu?
The BBOG co-convener ‘indirectly’ draws parallels with the Buhari administration.
I repeat, once upon a time in this country General Sani Abacha was seen as the only option on ground. Political parties adopted him. There was a two million man march for him. The then youth were earnestly asking for him.
Only a few could speak against him.

Most of us remembered vividly that the so called two million man march was bought on the street of Naija. We watched helplessly as our future was being carted away with gold coins.This is a slap and a bitter reminder of the impact of poverty on our politics. It is still in play!!

That's y they will neva reform d educational sector.
That's y they will neva establish functional vocational/skill acquisition centers across d regions.
Without 'knowledge' our youths who shld be our national investments/assets remain impoverished n helpless.#ThingsFallApart

1) Where was it said that PMB is the "ONLY OPTION"?
2) When did all political parties adopt PMB?
3) Has there been a "Million Man March" for PMB?
4) Are all Nigerian Youths asking for PMB?
Let us be OBJECTIVE with our criticism please.

Y'all are just gassed unnecessarily. She's speaking her truth,, nah she is speaking THE truth. Curse all you want, she's noble enough to remind you that part of history." incompetence should not be rewarded by blind loyalty"

Nigeria has gone through phases over the years although with little or nothing to show for it.The Abacha era was a dark age for Nigeria.We do hope that the manipulative influences that cowed many Nigerians then,will not have their way in this dispensation.God is watching

2. Captain Machuka
The Captain asks to love our mothers!
You suck your mom's breasts with milk for 2 years & you haven't done anything tangible for her.
You suck your girlfriend boobs without milk for 2 weeks & you think of buying her an expensive Valentine gift.
My brother, the thunder that will strike you is still doing press ups!

Very true mom's first then wives …wives please and always know that a woman took care of that hubby in order to reach u….we owe so much to our mother in love…let the boy child gift their mothers in equal measure…

Your thinking is pathetic. Go marry your mother then

3. Kate Henshaw
Still on the matter. A teacher raped a 3-year-old and a cconversation has started. The actress raises another issue.
Only Lagos State is serious about these domestic violence/rape cases. Others pay lip service…
— Kate Henshaw (@HenshawKate) February 14, 2018
Majority of the domestic violence/rape cases advocates are in Lagos. Few in Abuja and very few in Porthacourt.
Other parts of the country do not have advocates.

Most of them just come on social media to make noise and it all ends there. Sad 😢

4. Richard Mofe Damijo
“You’re complete on your own”, “Nobody completes you, nothing completes you” – those lines are Gold!
It’s that day of the year again when many are pressured by the need to be loved and cared for. The day where the pressure to outshine the other is on and the really single, bae-less ones feel out of sorts. Well my darling, do not let anything or anyone make you feel inadequate and/or incomplete. Don’t look for anybody to complete you today or at anytime. You are complete on your own. Nobody completes you. Nothing completes you. Stop looking for that person or thing that completes you. You won't find it. Find the One that made you and learn how to be with Him and be at peace, that way if the chocolates, cakes, roses and ice cream don’t come to you, you’ll gracefully enjoy the day nonetheless knowing that your happiness is in your own hands.

5. Shehu Sani
The military made sacrifices and achieved a lot in the battle against the insurgents,and that is commendable.But until the last hostage is freed and back home and until the suicide attacks stops,we can only say tremendous progress has been made but not complete victory.

6. Bisi Alimi
The human rights activist speaks after his recent visit to Nigeria.
How do one talk about Nigeria and its corruption and lack of self-awareness of its citizens and the lack of infrastructure and social amenities without sounding condescending.
My last trip has left a seriously bad taste in my mouth and a hole in my heart. I weep for Nigeria

7. Sunday Oliseh
The Nigerian football manager and former player reacts to his sack as Fortuna Sittard manager.
I confirm: Due to my refusal to participate in Illegal activities at Fortuna sittard & violate the Law,i have been Suspended from my duties as Coach by the Foreign Owners of Fortuna.Unfortunate for the lovely fans, my players & our hard fought phenomenal positioning for Promotion

But how about the question on his man-management skills during his time with the national team?
His time in the national eam saw the sudden retirement of the duo of Emmanuel Emenike and Vincent Enyeama who both faulted the style of the erstwhile Super Eagles captain.
