The search engine giant, Google in its yearly “Year in search annual publication” has exposed what Nigerians searched for in the year 2019.

The result has revealed the questions in the lips of average Nigerians. It also revealed where our priority lies as people.

In the trending news category of the result, ASUU strike top the chart. The popular University teachers’ industrial action which occurred between November 2018 and February 2019 was the most trended news.

In the trending people, Naira Marley a Nigerian artiste was the most searched person. His trending can be linked to his faceoff between the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFFC) alleged him of cyberfraud and his arrest.

In my opinion, these search results may be a pointer to why we are not progressing as a people. There were no searches that project that we want to grow.

While other countries’ searches were about asking quality questions for personal development and seeking more futuristic questions, here our questions in Nigeria are all backward thinking. These are what Nigerians search on Google in 2019.
