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:
English Teacher will ask me to write composition about Myself and will still score me 2/20.

Help us ask them oo.
Anyway, it is the grammar they mostly check, not the rather unrealistic holiday moments we write in our sheets.

Well… as much as we want to ‘retweet’ and ‘like’, no be everything we see we go like na.

This one gives us incomplete information.
So I heard a lecturer in one of the Nigerian universities said the best thing to permanently eradicate Sickle cell in Africa was to kill everyone with AS and SS genotype then there wouldn't be any incidence of it…Talk about crazy ideologies 😨😨

Give us his name let us drag him. Is that even a solution?

Never let your loyalty become slavery. If they don't appreciate what you bring to the table, let them eat alone.

Lol! ‘let them eat alone’.
But Seun is just telling us the truth. DO NOT enslave yourself in the name of loyalty. It is faithfulness, not slavery.
If your country’s International airport has free WiFi, chances are that your leaders at least pay attention to the little things that matter.

There should be a permanent dialogue between the Budget Office & the NASS Appropriation Committees.
But, this is Nigeria. But these grown adults will rather wait for a donor to explain to them.

Do they even understand what ‘they’ are doing in their various offices?

Nigeria has no natural disaster, but people still die mysterious death.
A lecturer once said ours is political and religious disaster, how true his statement is now.
Our condolences to the families of those who lost their loved ones in Ojuelegba. 🙏

It is pitiful that we allow these things become ‘disasters’ before we pay attention to them.
Yet again, the Ojuelegba accident brings to our minds and that of all well-meaning Nigerians, the question of how much value government places on the lives and welfare of the residents of this state. . We are concerned and we are calling on the @lagosstategovt to do something urgently. . Only a safe Lagos can be called the Centre of Excellence. . #SaferLagos #PeopleCenteredLagos
