9, leaving a little bit
In the western part of Nigeria, there is a special meal: not one of not eat leftovers, guests must stay at least one thing on the plate.
Even stranger is that the one thing they stay until the following day, it was thrown into rubbish bins. They believe: that the Holy Spirit will eat a thing.
In this country, tens of millions of tourists not to the delicious dish, the meat on the plate or soup, the food completely.
Each country has its own gods, when you eat with the Nigerian companies do business, absolutely not-to-eat food because they believe that they will eat the rest of the Holy Spirit those things, so when dining together, eat a little something left, the representative of the Holy Spirit that their country is respected, to leave a good impression on the other side.

9-- The leftover
There is a special rule in Nigeria in which when people eat, the guests are
expected to leave at least a piece of meat or some food on the plate.
It may seem strange to foreigners that the purpose of this left over food is
for the holy spirits. However, Nigerians strongly believe that the holy spirits would eat the left over food on the plate. Nigeria people usually throw away the left over food the next day.
Visitors or tourists should not eat up all the food on the plate in Nigeria
although the food may be tasty.
Every country has its own religion and customs. When you are having a
meal with Nigerians and are discussing about business, never finish all the
food on the plate. This is to show your respect to their custom and to leave a good impression to the Nigerians.
