Despite the earlier prediction of Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NMA) that an Eclipse of the Sun would be experienced in the country today, citizens have expressed their surprise over the absence of the anticipated annular eclipse as at 12 noon, in Lagos.
They are asking what went wrong with the prediction.
