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.
Today’s edition is on the event of the celebration of Democracy Day.
Here’s our list from today:

As we mark #DemocracyDay, we must not stop fighting for a more secure Nigeria. We must do this for all Nigerians — especially for future generations who are counting on us to leave behind a country that they can safely and proudly call home. pic.twitter.com/q8zAHg9QgP

Security in all areas, ‘financial security’ which the Senate is not allowing is one.

Lord, help us to overcome the ethnic and religious prejudices that deeply divide our nation. Help us to agree on the vision of a developed Nigeria, and on the values and structures that will help us achieve the vision. Amen. Happy Democracy Day Nigeria! #DemocracyDay

Won’t you say Amen?

HAPPY DEMOCRACY DAY!
WE PRAY FOR A NIGERIA THAT WE WILL ALL BE PROUD OF IN OUR LIFETIME.
A NIGERIA THAT IS STABLE AND FREE OF VIOLENCE
WE ASK GOD TO TAKE ABSOLUTE CONTROL AND LEAD THE GOVERNMENT ON THE RIGHT PATH.#DemocracyDay

So why are we celebrating #DemocracyDay ?
The fact that patients are in hospitals and doctors are on strike?
Or graduates are involved in illegal jobs more than legal ones?
Or that our security can't even withstand those dumb fulani herdsmen?
Or our Bubu is now English citizen?

Too many many, just too many problems but we still need to remind ourselves that we are no longer under military rule. We need to constantly remind our leaders that we can make demands as citizens. A celebration like this might help.

It's #DemocracyDay and exactly a year from today, people will be sworn in to lead our federation and states for another 4 years. Will you have a say in making that happen?
Will you? pic.twitter.com/Q0CGOq6XcW

I love this quote by Maya Angelou, it resonates with where we are as a Nation: "We shall not be defeated by our defeat" Despite the seeming challenge. Foster unity at all levels to protect our Democracy. We are resilient, we are Nigerians.#DemocracyDay @DrJoeAbah @obyezeks

“We shall not be defeated by our defeat”!!!
