August 1, 2015


Nigerian Twitter is so live!

There’s always a trending topic – whose relevance is debatable – that will cause an uproar and generally upend the normal affairs.

Today, it’s #IfStatesWereWomen, where they give the 36 states – or less, we forget some states – of Nigeria womanly attributes. These are the best tweets of the trend for  some states:

Abia

Adamawa

Akwa-Ibom

Anambra

Bauchi

Bayelsa

Benue

Borno

Cross River

Delta

Ebonyi

Edo

Ekiti

Enugu

Katsina

Kebbi

Kogi

Kwara

Lagos

Nasarawa

Niger

Ogun

Ondo

Osun

Oyo

Plateau

Rivers

Sokoto

Taraba

Of course, not everyone likes this twitter thread, some people find the trend sexist:

Because some of the tweets were a little pointed:

Don’t ask me where they go these comparisons from, I couldn’t possibly know. But one thing is sure, you have NEVER seen your states – or women – so graphically described.
