Nigerians on social media had quite a lot to say about an exchange between a mother and her son's girlfriend who celebrated her on Mother's Day, on May 10, 2020.
The girlfriend had sent her a message, thanking her for raising her boyfriend. She also expressed how she would have loved to come spend the day with her and cook a special meal for her if not for the lockdown.
The woman, however, was not impressed by the message and wasted no time in reminding her that they were not bound by any law yet. She also questioned why she would want to spend the day with her when she had her own mom.
