She said social media politics in Nigeria gets so carried away that we tend to waste so much time focusing on the least important things. She wrote;

My issue with social media politics in Nig is we get so carried away by the anonymous power social media gives us, that we tend to waste so much time focusing on the least important things. Things that basically have no long term impact. Meanwhile, the country is on fire 🙂

Social media is a drug. U always want a fix. Whatever is trending, you jump on – whether or not it makes sense to, you jump on it, because everyone else is jumping on it. Make a spectacle out of it. Until the next fix.

The world is leaving Nigeria behind for an entire day you will never get back, you can say you’ve been able to talk extensively about someone’s head. Because you disagree with his opinion. It’s mind-numbingly sad. 🙂

If it’s not someone’s head. It’s someone’s English. Or something so incredibly irrelevant. It’s always something irrelevant. I don’t think we understand how bad things are.



We don’t see how deep the rut we’re in is. Lol. Cos if we did see…boy!

Also, as usual, some sad little person will pick all the irrelevant things about this tweets and it’ll be another day, another fix.

Because that’s what we do.
