On Monday, cross section of Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to express their mixed feelings over the current state of the nation under President Muhammadu Buhari, barely nine months into his leadership.
While some Nigerians lamented the state of the nation under the current leadership, a few others called for patience, pointing that nine months is too early to judge the administration.
Some of the issues which topped the reactions border on the resurgence of fuel scarcity in parts of the country; the recent killings in four villages of Agatu Local Government Area of Benue State, as a result of the clash between local farmers and Fulani herdsmen; the dramatic U-turn by President Muhammadu Buhari, in Qatar, where he stated that the vulnerable unemployed youths should not expect the N5, 000 welfare package, promised by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), during the last presidential election campaigns, as well as the current economic crisis rocking the nation.
Other issues that topped the reactions on the hash tag, #WhereIsTheChange, that was No. 1 on Twitter Trends, as at Monday afternoon, were the alleged rampant foreign trip by President Muhammadu Buhari; the inflationary cost of consumers’ products; the current erratic power supply across the country, among other issues.
However, while some of the reactions were thought-provoking, others were funny as they were expressed in internet memes.
