Here are 3 Amazing Trends by Nigerian Twitter on Independence Day 2018

October 1st is supposed to be the most patriotic day on the Nigerian calendar. As the day we got our independence in 1960, this is one day we expect Nigerians to put out fireworks and get livid for the country.

So we decided to go on to Twitter to see what the Independence Day celebration looked like. How did it feel like? And what did Nigerians say about our independence? And here’s what we found out.

Nigerians Are Pessimistic About the Country

Nigerians endure a lot already in the polity of the country. Since independence, we’ve endured the killings in various quarters, corruption, poverty, unemployment, among many others. The net sum? Nigerians are now highly sceptical about the country.

And in most of the tweets surveyed, this fact was always present.
