Social Media Trends for Sunday 30th August 2020

Admin 30-Aug-2020 Nigeria_News

*Daily Trust* Mixed reactions have trailed a brutal editorial on former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode by the Daily Trust Newspaper. The editorial titled: 'FFK, The Drug Addled Thug In Designer Wears', went further to show that the wound caused by Fani-Kayode's insult on Daily Trust reporter in Calabar recently, is yet to heal. While many Nigerians hailed the editorial for being masterfully delivered, others frowned at it, saying it was unnecessary since Fani-Kayode had tendered a public apology. They also said that the Newspaper's viewpoint, which literally undressed the former Presidential Spokesman, would have been apt, if not for the timing. *Abaribe* Declining the invitation for the official reopening of the Enugu International Airport by Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, has made him a hero to some people on social media. According to them, turning down the invitation was a way of protesting against the alleged killing of some youths who were said to be members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Emene last Sunday. Others, however, said that Abaribe shunned the opening ceremony ostensibly to score a cheap political point and endear himself to the misguided apostles of secession. They also stated that the Federal Government should be commended since the renovation is a developmental stride that will further boost the economy of the region. *Matawalle* Zamfara Governor, Bello Matawalle, came under intense criticism on social media after he reportedly said he would introduce the death penalty for reckless driving in the state. According to Channels Television, the decision followed the death of 15 supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in a road accident in Tsafe Local Government Area of the State on Saturday. Reacting to the news, a cross section of Nigerians flayed Governor Matawalle, adding that he should first impose the death penalty on bandits and kidnappers who have overran the state under his watch, and then on his siren-blaring-convoy that constitute the greatest recklessness on the road; before considering the average motorist.
