President Muhammadu Buhari visited Lagos state on April 24 to perform such official work duties such as the commissioning of certain projects. To this effect, some major roads in the state were shut down to herald the presence of the president.
Upon his arrival, the president paid a courtesy visit to the governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode. During his visit, he met with the family of the governor including his wife and children.
A rare photo from the chatty rendezvous between the duo has been shared online. The shot which was shared by the personal photographer of the president, Bayo Omoboriowo, perfectly depicted the moment the children of the governor were paying courtesy to the president.
The male child prostrated flat on the ground to show his respect to the president of Nigeria. This is the traditional Yoruba way of greeting the elders.
Buhari's photographer Bayo shared this rare moment with Nigerians to show just how traditional values are kept even in political strongholds.
See the post below:
"This seemingly little moment reminds me of what my mother never stopped emphasizing while we where growing up... “Respect for elders”. Governor Ambode’s children prostrate to welcome the president to Lagos for the commissioning of Projects during his working visit to Lagos today!"
This show of respect has led to reactions from Nigerians. See some of the reactions below:
gbengulointl: "Amazing, but my Gov don make am already for this little kids."
