‘Na dem dey rush us’ — immigration jokes on Twitter after marriage poll win

0

 


The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has become a subject of discussion on social media after its official Twitter handler engaged in a banter session with users.

 

It all started on Wednesday when a Twitter user identified as John Doe initiated a poll for men on the platform.

 

The user had asked men whom they would prefer to marry if a police officer, immigration officer, army officer, and DSS officer were to be a woman.

 

“Men, If you’re to choose amongst this four type of women to marry, which will be your pick? Women, please do not vote abeg. Vote and/or comment,” he had written.


The poll, which had a total of 3,358 results, was won by immigration.

 

Reacting, the NIS quoted the poll with a meme of Charles Inojie saying: “na them dey rush us”.

 

It also accompanied the meme with a terse post which reads “dey play”. 


The NIS further responded to a user who expressed his desire to marry an immigration officer based on the poll with a meme of Sabinus, the comedian. 


The NIS’ humourous conversations with Twitter users have continued to elicit mixed reactions on the platform.

 

Some users commended the organisation for adopting a friendly approach to engaging people.

 

“I must commend the Handler of this Account for such an amazing, friendly and cordial response. I commend you and by extension wish that other governmental agencies (social media handlers) should also embrace this cheerful display at times, especially in this period and time,” a user wrote.

 

A segment of users, however, argued that a government handle should instead focus on serious issues.

 

“A government office doing meme? Na secondary school grad una employ there?” a user asked.
