Today, Nigeria celebrates its 58th independence anniversary. As is usual, it’s a time that calls for sober reflection for Nigerians as they share their opinions on the state of the nation.
Using social media, having meaningful conversations and getting swift feedback has to become seamless, helping to collate the mindset of Nigerians who have been sharing their thoughts on the country through the #NigeriaAt58 hashtag which has been driving the conversations.
Nigerians indeed have a lot to say and we bring to you some of they are saying.

At 33 we had Hope ‘93-dashed!
Then @ 39,democracy was back-Hope!
It dimmed. Democracy led nowhere. Brutality&corruption continued. PDP threatened to rule for 60yrs!
Hope again @ 54! CHANGE came! We made it!
Now its #NigeriaAt58.
Nothing to celebrate.

“Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause.
Guide our leaders right, help our youths the truth to know.
In love and honesty to grow and living just and true.
Great lofty heights attain.
To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign.”

Dear @Nigeria please act your age.
58 years old is not a small number, slap leadership skills into your leaders head, have meeting with them and talk sense into their brain.
I wish you good luck
