In the early hours of December 19, 2019, the Nigerian social media was buzzing with news of the impeachment of the America's president, Donald Trump, by the House of Representatives.
Trump was impeached after members of the house voted 230 in favour of removing him against 197 for him not to be impeached on the first article of impeachment - abuse of power.
Nigerians on social media were very excited by the news like it was their own president who was impeached and many of them joined the conversation with their individual platforms.
Nigerian celebs were not left out of the buzz as they compared the country’s government to that of America as they wondered if a powerful president could ever be impeached by votes.
Popular rapper, Ice Prince, also commented on the case. The musician asked if such impeachment conversations can also be started in some African countries. He wondered if such countries are ready.
He wrote: “Africans are watching CNN right now like its an African country at the FIFA World Cup finale !!! Nobody wants to be left out the trump conversation this week Meanwhile can we start some impeachment talks in some African country’s ?? Is it time Africa ?!”
See his tweets below:
Hmm. Is Africa ready for this?
In other news, Legit.ng reported that a number of Hollywood celebrities took to social media to celebrate Trump's impeachment.
Trump is the third-ever US president to be impeached - Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were the others.
Taking to social media, Trump showed just how little he cares about all this as he feels they will never get the conviction stage right, meaning he will not have to stand down.
