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

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

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.
