Check Out The #IfStatesWereWomen Trend, Which State Are You?

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

Abuja

Kano

Katsina

Kebbi

Kogi

Kwara

Lagos

Nasarawa

Niger

Ogun

Ondo

Osun

Oyo

Plateau

Rivers

Sokoto

Taraba

Yobe

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