Social Media Trends for Friday 25th September

This trended on Social media as Nigerians raised concern about the progress the country has made so far since gaining independence, as it turns 60 on October 1st.

Despite being a sarcastic hashtag, some Nigerians were able to point out that though the country wasn’t where it should be, it had made significant progress which could be sincerely acknowledged.

Others, however, justifying the hashtag, said it was needless to celebrate Nigeria at 60 since the country was still battling the same challenges such as unstable power supply, importation of petrol, among others.

The Ekiti Governor was all over the social media space after news of his purported suspension by a faction of the All Progressives Congress in the state was widely reported across various media outlets.

The party announced the suspension citing alleged anti party activities of the governor as reason.

But in a swift reaction, the APC national headquarters upturned the suspension, saying it had no effect.

While this drama played out, a cross section of Nigerians on social media expressed concern over stability in the ruling party and its effect on the overall governance of the country.

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubakar Malami, has come under fire following report of his refusal to appear before the Justice Ayo Salami-led panel to substantiate the allegations against suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr Ibrahim Magu.

A cross section of Nigerians who reacted on social media, flayed the AGF, saying no section of the constitution gives him such power to decline invitation to appear before a properly constituted panel of investigation.
