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 we saw today:
I just watched a @PoliceNG official calling a gathering of citizens who came out to protest Bad Governance an “unlawful assembly”. Such high level ignorance of the Constitution and the Laws of the Land. @BBOG_Nigeria secured a judgment against such stifling of Freedom in 2014. https://t.co/VqDCRaA10p

Peaceful protests is one of the tenets of democracy and you’ve just hit the nail right on the head, Madam.
One of the funniest thing on Twitter is seeing one tweet quoted with the same admonishment over and over. Like, at what point does it occur to people that they’ve nothing original to add to the erm, discourse?

This must be about the African American/African hair discourse and frankly Nigerians can be brazenly ignorant about cultural appropriation.
Just in case you are wondering, A woman’s cervix will stretch up to 10cm before the baby’s head can pass through.
Look at the photos to have an idea of what 10cm looks like

Maybe ”womb shifting” doesn’t have to be taken literally but figuratively [cues in Jay Holiday’s Bed]

Yeah yeah Today is Monday but Big Brother didn’t put anyone up for eviction today. Put your epistle back in the folder for next week. All the best.
Nigerians have not suffered enough. More than half of the population are used to suffering and anyhowness. A huge percentage also actively defend mediocre governance. I don’t see any serious revolution happening in a country where a lot of people behave in a docile manner.

What would you consider ”suffered enough”? I don’t think we should completely write off protests that can induce revolution. Look at some of the social changes that feminists have been able to effect in the larger society from social media. Have some faith, Dipo.
