Who Does the Nigerian President Bow To??? by papyjaypaul: 4:50pm On May 23
Two days ago, there was a topic here on a visit by Alhaji Dantata to the President.

nairalandkachy1:

President Bola Tinubu Receives Elder Statesman and Chairman of Dantata Group of Companies, Alhaji Aminu Dantata During Courtesy Visit at the Presidential Villa, Abuja
https://www.nairaland.com/8100448/tinubu-welcomes-kano-billionaire-aminu

I saw the pictures posted and people were surprised on how the billionaire was tall shocked

Today, I saw this picture. Is it okay for the President to bow to an individual I want those who understand protocol to comment. I know it will be impossible to avoid those who only think about politics, those who don't like President Tinubu and those who like him to death.

Are we following protocol If anyone has a picture of Buhari bowing, I will like to see it. Is this culture or tradition?Where do we draw the line? If Nigeria has a young President at age 30, does he bow or we will say he is rude

Presdient Jonathan was criticised for these pictures when he went on pilgrimage and when he was campaigning for re election.

Those who criticized him said he maybe forgot he is representing Nigeria and not himself as GCFR. Who does the GCFR bow to

Usually it's against protocol...

But I think this was a reflex action from the president.

Sometimes you unconsciously forget these things!

In the U.S., the President receives flak when he bows. Nigeria is copying the US Presidential form of government undecided

This was what I thought too. He respects him so much and he must have forgotten about it for a moment. That picture was not on The Presidency's release but guess who Nigerian Tribune cited as source lipsrsealed
And I don't need to ask why Tribune put it on their front page. For the records.

Perhaps, he could have slapped those who are older than him

The only record of President Buhari bowing was at the National Assembly after presenting the budget, a tradition President Jonathan gave Okonjo-Iweala to perform on his behalf cry

Re: Who Does the Nigerian President Bow To??? by Elzazzi: 5:30pm On May 23
I see nothing wrong with that picture. Dantata is a big fish and one of the eminent power brokers up North.

Before the white man came we had culture.
The white man brought government and protocol.

In Africa we respect our elders and we have different ways of showing that respect.

It is obvious you are of the Igbo tribe.
That is the only tribe known for not having respect for elders.

In other tribes respect for elders is paramount.

It is against protocol for the president of Nigeria to bow to anyone, but protocols can be broken. Could that pic not be a pre-election shot? Our journalists are not beyond starting a political scandal with an old photograph and their unusual love for sensationalism.

Imagine lying down on the ground at another man’s feet just because they are older than you. What is the gain?

Nobody cares how old you are, it’s what you did with your life that warrants respect

Well like I said aside the igbos, the rest of us Nigerians respect our elders.

You seem not to notice that in my first comment.

I have my uncled whos childrens school fees I pay, I have uncles I jave built houses for and some help comeplete their houses or help renovate. But I can never sit down to greet them be it in my house.

If I travek to the village and kill a goat I will never take a piece before the eldest person on the table, i can eat outside no doubt but sitting on that table, my money, my goat, my house, from my kitchen but I will never take a piece of that meat on that table untill the eldest person does......

We are Africans we respect our elders.

Unlike the Igbos who only respect money (stolen mostly)

Do you know that in your first paragraph, I posted something similar few weeks ago on another topic on NL When I was posting this topic, I remembered it but I have seen that even if you are intellectual, I cannot learn from you since you have assumed my tribe. Again, what has my tribe got to do with the topic You guys make Nairaland tiring and whether you are Masai, Hausa or Yoruba, once you write your last few paragraphs, I have no respect for you because you are not different than the people you think you are correcting. The most dangerous thing in life is to assume, the second most dangerous thing is to be blinded by bias. You are a blind man walking when you do the 2 because you will learn nothing and teach nothing.

This was my comment on the other post but I will not engage with you again since out of the mind comes the words you speak and write

How's a culture black man and backwardness? Some of you hate yourself and look for everything to blame

If the white man tells you to use left hand and some crazy rules just to eat food, it is progress but when we eat with our hands, it's inanities. Don't be a slave.

A man without identity is a nobody. The earlier you realise that, the faster you discover yourself. You don't have anything that belongs to you that is unique, you want to imitate people that don't have values, culture and tradition and think you are progressing. The joke is on you

Are you the president...?

Protocol is protocol... Stop talking about your village meetings.

Protocol directs how the president should act in public.

And stop bringing tribalism to every thing.

It's disgusting!

I am not the president but as you can see the president also shares the same ideology, hence his show of respect.
If the number citizen is still humble enough to show respect.
Its a nobody like you that feela your opinion counts.
You can go ahead and slap your elders in the morning, your tribe is very well known for that

Why do you assume you know my tribe...?

Who is talking of slapping anybody?

Protocols are simple rules and standards that normally govern behavior or procedures in a specific context. Get it?

They are certain ways a president of a country isn't expected to act in public. Understand?

The president bowing in that picture is a one-off situation where he probably forgot protocol.

Is bowing the only way to show respect to the elderly?

Na wah for you...

In the pictures above can you see ex president obasanjo bowing to then president buhari even though obasanjo is older?

When obasanjo was in president it was the other way around.

Simply because it's the protocol of the office. It's actually the office that Is respected and not the person.

Get it now?

Na you get respect pass na...Who your respect help!

If you like go and jump off a cliff because someone is your elder.

He had to bow esp because he lacks legitimacy.

He knows he did not win so he is just pretending to be president. He is president for Yorubas only

I’m honestly surprised at the last line of his submission. Why should regard for an elder or anyone for that matter be predicated upon material possessions? I now understand why Nigeria’s image is on a downward spiral.

Dont ask me ask the Igbos....
I drive myself, the gentle man who drives my children is call him bros he iw older than me by about 10 years.
Respecr shouldn't be about money.
But that is the case in the East.

You will hear "how much you get?" Everywhere when you visit the east, a statement you will most probably never hear in any other part of the country

LoL so when you meet a man who is obviously old enough to be your father at an event you start treating him like an equal until he gains your respect?

His age is not enough for you to respect him....

LoL.

Whats the difference bettween you and animals.

LoL children
