Ahmed Musa (MON) (OON) @Ahmedmusa718

It has come to my attention that on a moment captured almost a month ago, has unexpectedly become the center of attention on social media. It's disheartening to see a simple act of cultural respect blown out of proportion. In our Northern culture, the gesture of kneeling, shaking hands etc signifies the highest form of respect. This was my intention when I greeted the Deputy Governor in such a manner. However, when it came to greeting the Governor, I chose to bow and not shake his hands, honoring him in a way that is deeply rooted in tradition.

It's unfortunate that amidst all the pressing issues our nation faces – economic hardships, security challenges, religious clashes and more – this seemingly insignificant moment has garnered so much attention. Even national media outlets like ARISE TV have jumped on the bandwagon, diverting focus from issues that truly matter- highly disappointing I must say.

What's even more disheartening are the comments questioning my respectfulness, especially from those who don't know me personally. Let's pause for a moment and reflect on where we choose to direct our energy. Shouldn't it be towards finding solutions to the problems plaguing our society rather than getting caught up in needless distractions?

I urge us all to channel our collective efforts towards addressing the real issues at hand. Let's focus on uplifting one another, fostering unity, and working towards a better future for all. And with this, I rest my case. #FocusOnWhatMatters #CulturalRespect #UnityInDiversity ❤️👍🙏

I have seen a video where the very rich Alhaji Dantata offered his hands to some men and they didn’t shake him. In the North, this doesn’t translate to disrespect. Cultures differ

He didn’t explain anything.

He just went on long vituperation instead of addressing the issue.

Why did he kneel to greet and shake the deputy governor but refused even a handshake from the governor neither did he kneel as he did for the deputy?

He has his biases and those biases informed that action but, of course, he won’t admit it.

He probably has corn 🌽 in Agbada😏

I blame Nigerian bloggers for this... they do anything to gain traffic. Everyone who's familiar with northern culture knows it's considered humility when you bow or kneel instead of shaking hands with someone older or of higher social status.

Nigerians always claim to be smart, but when the slightest things happen, you see people talking senselessly online without engaging their thinking faculty 🙄

Ipob and logic are lightyears apart. You understand his mind more than him. You also understand his culture more than him. Meanwhile, even the governors action indicates acknowledgement of the cultural respect. This is how they see white but insist it is black. Example is telling us obi is competent when everyone knows he was the worst governor ever exist in Nigeria.

The modern African has lost his traditions and culture, so blinded to the point of stupidity that traditional things that don't conform with idiotic western values are seen as abnormal.

Brainwashed by Netflix, CNN, Hollywood and Musk's monthly pittance..

Good one by Ahmed Musa by sticking to his traditions..

When an elderly man extends his hands to shake you as a young man, you should do well to respectfully reciprocate by shaking it with a bowing gesture rather than allowing the hand hanging. But, never extend your hand first as a young person.

So, I don't understand this explanation but since the governor didn't go ballistic on Ahmed Musa but was laughing with him, it's ok for me.

Arise tv is a propaganda platform of enemies of Nigeria.

I'm not expecting anything good from that outlet .

Very unprofessional.
