It is not news that Nigerians are some of the funniest people on earth. Nigerian Twitter is also one of the funniest places in the online space – and everyday, there is something to crack one up. But amongst these daily doses of comedy, there are some tweets that stand out, and have stood out since they were first posted. These hilarious and timeless posts were first curated on a thread by @Ekanem94, and even though some tweets have been added/removed, we still owe him our thanks for resurrecting them.
On behalf of who? Did we send you? https://t.co/c5r6zZnJ3u

Was gisting with the cab driver when he mentioned he's recovering from epilepsy. So right now I'm on 3rd Mainland bridge, trekking to work.

Nigerians so superstitious. Cabs will refuse to stop just cos you're wearing all black, and it's night, and you're carrying a cutlass…

In Lagos, driving a car is war. And in war, you don't tell your enemy your next move. That's why most people don't use indicators.
