How Nigerians Reacted
Uniquekriss wrote; ”Some stoopeed people will start attributing this act to the fact that Obi is a boy to Atiku. Obi is just too good to be our leader, he’s complete in all ramifications. He should be elected President of Africa so that the narratives can actually change among the black race!”

donphilopus wrote; ‘‘I thought Igbos were against kneeling for or bowing to someone? They say they only bow to their Chi. This one na notice me abeg.! Same thing that you condemn Yoruba’s for doing si what you’re commending Peter Obi for now. Hypocrisy.!”
