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:

2. Editi Effiong ruminates on the significance of this moment:

Growing up, my greatest fear was being called by God to be a true prophet: a life of ridicule, suffering & pain. I'm a public servant now😂

Hehehe. Still the wisest.
5. Atiku Abubakar
He may not be able to fly down to London to see the Lion King like his comrades are doing, but the former Vice President is drinking to the president’s health regardless:

Take a page out of Seyi’s book; look and see in 3D:
Life is all about perspective. The way you see a Traffic Jam is not the same way a Gala and LaCasera seller sees it.

We know; we know. This is a bombshell:
When you died fighting for Amaechi or wike, and you just heard they were both spotted together in a chopper in port Harcourt 😁😁😁 pic.twitter.com/rv3bRcrlfX

Still, it’s politics.
