Hashtags- Are we to #EndSARS or to Restructure Plus Ronaldo got 5 #BallondOr

This week, on our social media roundup, we will be reviewing a highly vituperative social media space especially as the#EndSARS campaign trended for more than 5 days. Yes,  many other memorable events occurred and we are going to share.

Do enjoy your reading!


Nigerians this week came out in their numbers to lend their voice to support the campaign against officers of the Nigerian Police from Special Anti Robbery Squad unit, popularly known as ‘SARS’.

This followed numerous complaints of alleged assault, attack, killing and violation of Fundamental Human Rights by SARS officers especially on young Nigerians (especially when you carry a backpack and look well fed).

Many prominent figures like Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Remi Sonaiya, Oby Ezekwesili have lent their voice to support the campaign.

And the celebrities were not left out:


In response, the Nigerian Police Force released channels of communication for the public to report incidents of assault and the Inspector General of Police ordered the reform of the unit nationwide.



Former Vice President of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the People Democratic Party (PDP) officially this week. Many people feel it is long coming anyways. But, it was official this week.


As expected the PDP welcomed him ‘back home’

And,  while some say it’s a nice development many people feel otherwise.



In continuance of his political promises, President Muhammadu Buhari visited Kano this week on a 2-day visit and it was an issue on social media.

See highlights of his visit below:

As expected, reactions and pictures from the visit flooded the internet:




Real Madrid and Portugal forward,  Cristiano Ronaldo has won the World’s highest football award, Ballon d’Or, for the fifth time.  Ronaldo defeated other top twenty players to clinch the award. As it stands, Ronaldo has won Ballon d’Or, FIFA’s The Best,  UEFA Player of the Year, UCL Top Scorer [2016/17].

See reactions and football pundits’ comment below:
