Nigeria turned 58 on Monday and while it was a happy moment for some, with the “birthday” of the most populated Black nation in the world being a celebratory moment regardless of current circumstances. For others, Independence Day was bittersweet or just simply disappointing—serving as a painful reminder of how little progress has been made in those 58 years. Regardless of your takeaway, it is basically universally agreed upon that Nigerians can make light of virtually any situation (no pun intended), so we decided to share some of the funniest Independence Day tweets that we caught on the timeline. Have a laugh and look below, then let us know what Independence Day means to you (if anything).
