Debo Adebayo, a Nigerian comedian better known as Mr Macaroni, has sparked controversy on Twitter for saying that the Nigerian government has never done anything for him.


The heated argument started on Friday when the comedian took to the microblogging platform to ask Nigerians if they had benefited anything from the government over the years.

The entertainer had also expressed his own view, explaining that since he was born, the federal government has not done anything for him.

“Honest question: Since you were born into this country, can you mention one thing that the Government has done for you? Personally, I can’t mention one. I don’t know about you,” he wrote.


His post has since elicited mixed reactions on the microblogging platform.

While some backed the comedian’s view, others listed various things they have benefited from the federal government.

Some also argued that while the government might have performed below expectations, it would be unfair to say they haven’t done anything.


“That you can even buy a sim, subscribe to a phone network, enter PlayStore to download Twitter and come online to tweet this, govt has done something for you. If them born you well, relocate to North Korea or China. Oponu, alaim’ore!” a user wrote.

“I don’t mean to sound harsh or rude But the Government literally did nothing … For those clamouring for subsidy of price .. The question from me to you is Are you Ok?? They give u crumbs and Eat the loaves of bread .. you are saying it is something… Arent u tired of suffering,” another user wrote.

Here is what some Nigerians had to say:
