Nigerians are avid users of the internet and the rate of usage is always ever-increasing.


In 2016, some particular topics, questions, stories, and events dominated the Google web searches of Nigerians.

“From elections to excitement to shock and hope, the direction of this year’s search reveals that Nigerians are eager to learn about current events not just within the country, but in other parts of the world, as the searches for the year move outside search for songs, actors, movies and sports news.”

‘What is Budget Padding’, more than any other search, stood out as a major topic of discussion among Nigerians while personalities like Stephen Keshi and Bukky Ajayi, both deceased, were also featured among the most searched.


In the aspect of learning, Nigerians were said to be interested in topics and questions relating to “empowerment and self-improvement”.

“Nigerians were also eager to empower themselves and learn ways to do new things,” the statement added.

These are top internet searches made by Nigerians in 2016.
