6 Oct. 2020 update: Good morning Nigeria, welcome to mnaija.com trending gist on social Media platforms in Nigeria for Tuesday 6th October 2020.
Mixed reactions have trailed the move by Borno State Government to return Internally Displaced Persons to their ancestral communities which have been liberated from Boko Haram insurgents.
Governor Babagana Zulum, on Monday inaugurated two committees to ensure the return of IDPs to the liberated local government areas of the state.
While the move was widely commended and seen as an indication that the Nigerian Armed Forces was winning the war against insurgency in the Northeast, some Nigerians on social media, however, said it was too early to start contemplating on resettlement.
According to them, the move might endanger the lives of the IDPs, since the security issue in the Northeast region was still fragile. They said resettlement should follow carefully thought out plans with adequate contingency measures put in place.
A cross section of Nigerians have chided Naira Marley for canceling the planned protest against the menace of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
Marley’s decision followed an entreaty from the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr. Sunday Dare and a live Instagram chat with DCP Frank Mba, Force Spokesman, on the way forward.
They said the singer was not sincere as he was only using the avenue to achieve frivolous ends.
But there were others who commended Marley for backing down on the protest, saying it was no longer necessary since the government was already taking action.
Nigerians who are desperate for a protest over SARS brutality are now taking solace in the assurance given by Runtown, that there was no going back on the protest he intends to lead on Thursday October 8, 2020.
Unlike Naira Marley, Runtown who trended alongside the hashtag ‘Thursday is Thursday’, is calling on Nigerian youths to come out and protest against the continued violation of their fundamental rights by personnel of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
Many who followed the trend urged him to be firm and not waver like his musician friend, Naira Marley.
Supporters of Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, seem to have found an occasion to fire a salvo at those who criticized Ganduje when he unbundled the Kano Emirate sometime last year.
Their grouse followed the disclosure by some news media that Kaduna state government was working on an executive bill that would reform the composition and classification of the state’s chieftaincy and traditional council.
According to reports, the bill comes amidst speculations that Governor Nasir El-Rufai was trying to balkanize the Zazzau emirate into three emirates to accommodate the top three contenders for the throne.
They said people who had opposed and condemned Governor Ganduje when he did something similar in Kano, could not come out again to do same to Governor Nasir El-Rufai, wondering what could have been the missing link between the two governors.
Davido, Lil Frosh
Social media users have commended Davido’s music label, DMW for terminating their contract with Lil Frosh, following allegations of abuse by his ex-girlfriend.
In a statement released on its verified Instagram page, DMW said, “In light of the recent allegations made against Mr Sanni Goriola Wasiu aka Lil Frosh, we would like to state that as a record label, domestic violence is not a trivial matter and we will never support or condone such behaviour.”
Meanwhile, those who reacted to the development have slammed Lil Frosh, adding that he lacked respect for women. Some also called for his arrest, saying it would deter other celebrities from assaulting women.
It was a win win situation for Laycon, winner of the Big Brother Naija 2020 Lockdown edition, as the Ogun State Government appointed him youth ambassador, with a 3 bedroom bungalow and N5 million gift.
A cross section of Nigerians who reacted on social media, congratulated him, and stated that his journey to super fame has just begun. They also wished him well, while discharging the responsibilities of his new office.
