What Happened To Our Beautiful Cultures In Nigeria? by lammyna(m): 10:34pm On Jan 25
As we all know the number of tribes we have in Nigeria and with different cultures. We have forgot our cultures & tradition in Nigeria.

Like in 70s, 80s and 90s when youths give maximum respect to elders.

When married women called their husbands, Lords.

When women kneeled down to greet or give foods to their husbands.

When children would have given themselves punishment before father's back from work.

When you can't disrespectful your seniors in schools.

When you honoured your teachers by bowing down your heads when they were talking.

As so on.

What happened to our cultures?

You are right but I disagree with you. When I was in secondary in 90s, I had a teacher we called master, we dare not disrespect him. Also, all our seniors then can be hell out of you.

Whenever I offend my mum, just by mentioning my father, men, na fear ooo. We respected our elders then no be small. I dare not talk back to my seniors or parents. Those lessons are still there till now.

We are in our times.. Even cultures evolve. The problem with us actually is that we think too much of the past when we should actually be thinking of the future.
