BMC Trolls Think They Can Get Me Fired From My Job

I just recently became aware that hordes of headless online trolls of the Muhammadu Buhari regime are writing-- or have written-- an online petition to get me fired from my university. 🤣🤣🤣I didn't realize I'm that much of a threat to Buhari's decaying autocracy.

But the stupidity of Buhari's inept regime-- and the idiotic minions it hires to troll critics-- is truly boundless. These low-IQ twerps think America is Nigeria. I'm now even more energized than ever before to expose the fetid fraud that is this regime.

You're a BMC Troll? I'm Your Employer!
Sometime in 2017, a long-time acquaintance of mine who works in the Presidential Villa told me I had become a "big-time employer of labor in Nigeria." I was puzzled until he explained that I was one of the major reasons the Buhari regime inaugurated a shadowy troll farm called the Buhari Media Center, which now goes by other names.
The BMC started with only about 40 people who have multiple fake social media accounts. But it's now an entire propaganda and mind-management industry that employs thousands of people and sucks up millions of naira monthly. N-Power beneficiaries have now been incorporated into it.
Their remit is to flood online comments with pro-regime propaganda, smear and libel government critics, invent slanderous falsehoods against critics, magnify the slip-ups of critics and use that as a crutch to deflect focus on the government's unending fraud, etc.
But the unhealthy fixation the Buhari regime has on me is flattering, frankly. This must either mean that, in their cluelessness, they hyperbolize my influence on Nigerians or that my exposes of their malfeasance is achieving the intended effect. Or both.
Whatever it is, I'm glad to be one of the reasons a swarm of thoughtless and unemployable online trolls have a monthly paycheck.
