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. Here are the ones we saw today:
The President doesn’t engage enough with citizens. For some reason, he seems to be more at home talking to the international press while he’s out of the country than engaging with the local press or directly with citizens | Mr President, Please talk to us! https://t.co/1hUdg3EQo0

Some women like the idea of a man asking them out in perpetuity to:
– feed their ego
– have options to fall back on when they want to.
