Nigerians on Twitter have begun a ‘Goodbye Nigeria’ trend to comment on the rate at which youths are leaving the country.

As part of the trend, Nigerians who have departed the country shared their pictures at the airport or in a foreign country, with the caption ‘Goodbye Nigeria’.

Other associated words in line with the trend are ‘Welcome to a new dispensation’, ‘VPN deleted’, ‘japa’ etc.

Since the Twitter suspension on June 4, Nigerians have been forced to use VPN in order to access the social platform, even as the Federal Government has promised that Twitter will be back “soon”.

‘Japa’ has also become a slang young Nigerians use to describe the act of leaving Nigeria for another country

Reacting to the amount of ‘Goodbye Nigeria’ written recently by those leaving the country, tweeps have blamed the government for the increase in relocation out of the country.

A tweep, @agbolutai, said, “A country that has several means of transportation and is spiced with electric cars has no excuse for the madness going on at gas stations. No, it’s not acceptable. Goodbye Nigeria indeed.”
