Nigeria – Buhari snubs Tinubu’s wife at Abuja airport

Watch:
A video showing the moment President Muhammadu Buhari appeared to refuse to shake hands with Senator Oluremi Tinubu, wife of APC National leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, while greeting other dignitaries on the sidelines of the E-Nigeria International Conference, Award and Exhibition in Abuja on Thursday has appeared on Twitter.
In the video which is about 18 seconds long, Buhari is seen alighting from his official Mercedes Benz at the International Conference Centre, Abuja after which he is welcomed by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami.

The President subsequently shakes hands with the Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule, who is standing next to Mrs. Tinubu, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Communications.

Senator Tinubu, who curtsies twice, however, does not get a handshake from the President and she didn’t extend her hand for one.

Buhari subsequently skips her and goes on to exchange pleasantries and a handshake with Inuwa Abdullahi, the Director-General of the National Information Technology Development Agency.

The President’s action, however, caused a debate on Twitter.
While some said what the President did was not wrong, others said the action was evidence that the President believes that women only belong to the “kitchen and the other room,” a  claim he had once made while talking about his wife, Aisha.
Twitter user, @donaldnihio tweeted, “The woman was totally ignored. Eyah! Inside life,” while, @emperorjissy tweeted, “There s no possible way he would have had a handshake with Remi Tinubu there. The minister was obviously blocking her and she was not putting her hands forward.”
