RENUNCIATION OF FIRST SON POSITION
I think it will be time-saving If I avoid the usual preliminary pleasantries and jump straight into the purpose of this letter and I hope you will be kind enough to accord this letter a dispassionate assessment. After years of deep reflection, I have come to the conclusion that the position of first son increases my family problems.
The position is a total liability to mo, o 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 in the family 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 lkenna and Victor and they are free to treat all 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. Thank you for your understanding.
