While we celebrate one thing going right for Nigeria, here are other interesting topics on social media this week

Leading by example

This week, Lamborghini donated a one of a kind car to Pope Francis who plans to auction it and donate the proceeds to charity.

Nigerians react.

Many commended the Pope

Chinua Achebe remains one of the world’s best modern writers and his legacy lives on.

#FreeTheSheeple

Since last week, there has been a debate on “tithing” on social media led by Nigerian On Air Personality (OAP), Ifedayo Olarinde popularly known as Daddy Freeze. Using the #FreeTheSheeple hashtag, the OAP calls out Nigerian pastors using their congregations’ tithes to enrich themselves.

Some Nigerians agree with him

While some strongly disagree

He got replies from Nigerian pastors

Ulterior motives?

Who do you think tithes should be paid to? Read this thread.
