Naira Swap: Funny Memes That Swept Arewa Media Space

Naira Swap: Funny Memes That Swept Arewa Media Space

The Naira swap deadline in the North, like other parts of Nigeria, has caused untold hardship on many.

Anina, a Fulani that sells fresh cow milk told AllNews Nigeria that she has not been able to make sales as people do not have the new notes.

She said she used the old notes she also has to buy animal feed earlier.

Amina is just one of hundreds who are suffering from lack of cash; for her kind who do not have bank accounts, the hardship is even worse.

Despite the hardship faced by many, from the long queues at banks to rejection from stalls (in case of old notes), Nigerians have still been able to make light of the situation with funny memes.

The above cartoon/meme flooded WhatsApp statuses, stating something similar to a fact.

Though none of the girls that sell groundnut or anything else has been seen carrying a POS, others who push their stuff in a wheelbarrow, and some tomato sellers were seen using the device for payments.This second meme is both scary (for those who will actually go through with it) and funny.

The caption means "People of Kano, it is tomorrow".

This is referring to President Buhari's planned Monday visit where some have vowed to really pelt the President's convoy with as many stones as they can find.

Kano is very much packed with security personnel as at Sunday evening.

So, we just wait and see if people would make good their threat.

The next meme that flooded some social media platforms, especially WhatsApp and face book is one depicting President Buhari as a descipline master.

Funny as it may look, the people are using this to make light of the hard situation they are in the best way they could.

Then there was a short video from an interview of Buhari with Tambarin TV (Hausa) where the Presenter thanked the President at the end.

And he, Buhari replied: "Don't thank us yet, wait let us finish", and he laughed a hearty laugh.

The short clip is making statuses and people are having a good laugh as they describe the President as wicked.

There are many more, but these made most rounds making light of a hard situation
