In his words:
"The position is a total liability to me, a setback and a thorn in my flesh, hence I am writing to formally inform you that I have renounced my position as your first son and I am willing to allow my immediate younger brother, Ikenna to take over the position if he so desires.
"By this letter, I am also relinquishing all my entitlements and heritage as your first son to Ikenna and Victor and they are free to treat these entitlements as they wish.
"I will therefore plead that going forward I should no longer be addressed as the first son of your family, I am willing to become the last born if possible."
