I Stand With Nigeria

Remember how Tuface called for a protest against the government following the state of things in the country? He pulled out and shared a video on social media stating his reasons, but did that stop Nigerians from coming out to protest on Monday February 6th? Hell No!!!! Nigerians came out in their numbers in Lagos and Abuja. Below are tweets from the protest from Lagos and Abuja mainly.


Stop the Soot

Port Harcourt was in the news this week as a result of environmental issues. They woke up and found their sky filled with soot. It was a worrying situation and brought to the fore the environmental issues that communities in oil producing areas of the Niger Delta have been faced with for years.See some of the reactions from Twitter Nigeria:

Yakubu Andrew

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission made a huge discovery this week. They found a whooping $9.8million and £74,000 in the house of former GMD of NNPC Yakubu Andrew. Yes, there were pictures this time and it left Twitter Nigeria in a state of Wawu.
