What is favour?
1. Favour is friendly regard showing toward one another especially from someone superior. It is a special privileged. It is something done out of goodwill not out of justice.
2. Favour is an excessive kindness or unfair partiality or preferential treatment. Favour makes a man to receive without asking.
