Social Media Trends for Tuesday 25th August 2020
Nigerians have hailed Governor Bello Matawalle after photos which showed him presenting gold to President Muhammadu Buhari, went viral on social media.
Those who reacted on Twitter said that the solid mineral, if effectively harness, can contribute significantly to the economic development of the state.
The appointment of John Momoh, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Channels Television as Acting Chairman of University of Lagos Governing Council, took many by surprise.
While some expressed reservation over the appointment, others commended Momoh for silently playing his politics well without dragging Channels TV into it.
Many people have blasted former Minister of Aviation, Mr Fani-Kayode, after a viral video surfaced on the internet in which he was seen in a rage of anger, cursing and maligning a reporter from the Daily Trust Newspaper, who asked him a simple question during a press conference in Calabar.
The journalist had asked Fani-Kayode who was funding his recent tour of states in the South South, but instead of providing answers, the former minister resorted to verbal attack.
Joining other Nigerians on social media to condemn action of the former Presidential Spokesman, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), on its Twitter handle, asked Fani-Kayode to tender public apology to the journalist.
Unilorin Teaching Hospital
Nigerians have taken to social media to express outrage over the reported death of a patient at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, after striking workers allegedly turned off his ventilator.
Twitter users who reacted to the news, called on the government to fish out the perpetrators and ensure that adequate punishment is meted out.
