Linda Ikeji, I'm surprised you are pleased with GEJ's kneeling down to greet her, he carries an entire nation on his shoulders and kneeling down to greet ANYONE is a pure show of lack of understanding about the position he carries, that's like Nigeria kneeling to a woman..you won't see other president's of the world doing that..NEVER!

Humility is a very powerful tool regardless of your position! He sees her as his own mother, only few people with such power can humble themselves and give respect. May God honour you too and you shall live long President GEJ.

Mr. President, bow down to no one. You are disrespecting Nigeria and Nigerian and it's probably part of the reasons why those aboki disrespect you. They think you're a pushover. I hope you're not a pushover.

The Queen of England bows to nobody, and she's damn right and shouldn't. Obama and Jonah, please, take note, and all these genuflecting and curtsying needs to stop, or they'd expect you to polish their shoes, do the hoovering, cleaning, laundry and ironing.

Mr Presidon, must you take a pic-kneeling down before her and show it to the world? It was a private visit and it should be kept private. People knee down before their elders every day in Nigeria, so you being the President and doing the same thing is no big deal. It was done for political gain.

Yes because it's not their custom nd tradition to do so in other parts of the world. It's ours to always respect our elders via different gestures. Jonathan is known for humility thats wat brought him dis far. If only Nigerians will remove pride nd greed from ourselves nd stop imitating d western world we will b beta people nd carry a unique positive trademark to b identified with around d globe.
