The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has caused some stir online.
The NIS became a subject of discussion on social media after its official Twitter handler engaged in a banter session with users.
It all started on Wednesday when a Twitter user identified as John Doe initiated a poll for men on the platform.
“Men, If you’re to choose amongst this four type of women to marry, which will be your pick? Women, please do not vote abeg. Vote and/or comment,” he had written.
If you’re to choose amongst this four type of women to marry, which will be your pick?

The poll, which had a total of 3,358 results, was won by immigration.
Reacting, the NIS quoted the poll with a meme of Charles Inojie saying: “na them dey rush us”.
It also accompanied the meme with a terse post which reads “dey play”.

The NIS further responded to a user who expressed his desire to marry an immigration officer based on the poll with a meme of Sabinus, the comedian.

The NIS’ humourous conversations with Twitter users have continued to elicit mixed reactions on the platform.
Some users commended the organisation for adopting a friendly approach to engaging people.
“I must commend the Handler of this Account for such an amazing, friendly and cordial response. I commend you and by extension wish that other governmental agencies (social media handlers) should also embrace this cheerful display at times, especially in this period and time,” a user wrote.
A segment of users, however, argued that a government handle should instead focus on serious issues.
“A government office doing meme? Na secondary school grad una employ there?” a user asked.
