  1. This is not an issue of Diversity and Tolerance. This dress is part of Nigeria. The wig is not part of Nigerian custom. It is a hangover from European Colonial structures. And hence it is a forced item that Nigeria still abides by. Where is Nigerian Independence of thought in all this. Why did it even have to come to this.
