Theresa May, Omo-agege And El-Rufai: Who Knelt Best? by Abdulazeez99: 11:47am On Jun 13
Nigerian web users have dug out this photo of UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, curtsying to Prince William. The photo is being shared online after the new Deputy senate president received serious bashing for kneeling before Buhari on Tuesday, Igbere TV reports.


Igbere TV reports that Nigerians have been divided since the photo of Omo-Agege kneeling before President Buhari surfaced online. There are arguments that if Theresa May could show this level of respect to the Prince, even as prime minister, then there is nothing wrong in the Deputy Senate President kneeling before President Buhari.


Reno Omokri via his Twitter handle, argued that the Deputy Senate President is in the arm of government that is meant to check the activities of the executive.


According to Reno, when a person with such an important role kneels before the President, he may not have the courage to stand up against any decision made by him.


Some web users have also shared the photo above showing Kaduna state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai kneeling before President Buhari and argued that it is just a sign of respect.


Others have stated that Gov. El rufai isn’t in the legislative arm of the government unlike Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege.

Let me start from the bottom, hell rufai is a demon, he can do anything to cling into power, and when he finally get there, he begins to unleash his demonic agent on the people.

The second picture which is between the prime minister and the Prince. that's the true show of respect to the royal throne as it ought to be.

And the first one arrrrhhhh,is not good for democracy seeing a DSP doing such to the president, put sentiment aside now and reason even with common sense.

Case closed.thank u.

That's the usual way Theresa greets the senior royals..

El-rufai,is a midget so going close to the ground is natural..

But Omo-agege a full grown southern man, did it in style, beautifully and gorgeously stupid.

It's a must do because she's white shay? But when black man practices his own tradition, then it becomes abnormal

stephleena:

Not at all..that's Theresa's signature greeting to the Royals.
I'm yet to see the same Omo-agege kneeling before monarchs,apart from when receiving prayers..

El-rufai's kneeling is habitual..he has done it for Atiku, OBJ ,it's now Buhari's turn.

Culture and eye service are two different things.
Another way to look at it is this.

Theresa May (62) knelt down to greet a 36 year old prince.
Verdict = He's part of the royals

El Rufai and Omo Agege knelt down to greet someone who's not just about 20 year older than them, but is also the president and emperor in chief of Nigeria.
Verdict = In Africa, we respect elders, especially elders with influence. Besides in Urhobo culture where Omo Agege is from, the Urhobo greeting 'Migwo' literally translates as " I am on my knees". So anyone angry with Omo Agege for practicing his culture should go and sleep.

If it is ok for Theresa May to show respect it is also ok for Senator Omo Agege to show respect. But it is not ok for him to steal the mace.

The British monarchy is not an arm of the British govt. There is zero comparison between Theresa May's curtseying to the duke and both cases in Nigeria. Pmb is not only the president but an elder/ancestor and hence deserves respect from omo agege and elrufai. That is the only reason I am not complaining. If not for that single reason I gave above,no arm of govt should be a slave to another arm.

Theresa May is a GOAL.

Elrufai is a short man inside Agbada so it's difficult to know if he was on his kneels.

Omo - Agege is wearing wrapper so I can assume he almost fell so Buhari will think he knelt down.

Theresa May showed them how to do it.
