*Social Media Trends For Friday 2nd October 2020*
Former Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, has stirred up series of reactions on social media after he said that most of those claiming to be fighting for their geopolitical zones are only interested in their pockets.
Sanusi, who stated this at 'The Platform', an annual conference organised by Covenant Christian Centre in Lagos, noted that political elites used ethno-religious crises to get into public offices only to serve selfish interests.
The former CBN chief's message was favourably received by many, who applauded him for hitting the nail on the head. But some however opined that Sanusi only said what he felt the people wanted to hear, as his disposition when he was in a position of authority bespoke the opposite.
Mixed reactions have trailed the announcement by the Minister of Education, Mr. Adamu Adamu, that schools across the country are now at liberty to fix their resumption dates and ensure that there are adequate safety measures while doing so.
The Minister, who made this known in Abuja, explained that the COVID-19 curve has been flattened.
Those who reacted on various social media platforms, expressed happiness for the development, while also registering their concern for the continued strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
They called on government to do everything within its power to resolve issues with ASUU so that the education sector can pick up, after being grounded for months.
Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri, was on the trend after the Court of Appeal dismissed the majority judgement of the state election tribunal which nullified his election.
Those who reacted to the judgement congratulated and urged him to deliver good governance to the people of Bayelsa, as his victory was made possible by God.
