Dear Nigerians.

I have read many reactions asking why I didn’t prostrate to greet the Oni of Ife.

Well, for your information, I am a titled man. And in a place where I come from, we only bow to Chukwu, not any man.

We have a culture and in our culture, we don’t bow to any man.

As a titled man, I can also shake American president, or UN secretary without bowing to him.

It is my culture and I represent it anywhere I go”.
Peter Edochie.
