This is a photo of governor Fayose of Ekiti state prostrating to salute Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Enitan Babatunde Ogunwusi Ojaja II at the Abuja airport recently.....
What am i trying to say?
Call the handsome governor whatever but you cannot call him a man who does not know tradition.
Obasanjo has prostrated before the Ooni who used to be and still is like a son to him..The Ooni used to prostrate before Baba back in the days.
Now my question....Must all prostrate before the Ooni?Is a handshake and bending of the head same thing as the bowing greeting?
What other form of greeting can one use to escape the prostrating greeting?I have seen several photos of the Ooni and other dignitaries and some of them do not bother to go down.
Is prostrating just for people from Western Nigeria or for all?
