Former Minister of Aviation, Fani-Kayode has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari for gleefully shaking hands with the Queen Elizabeth II of England, after allegedly refusing to shake hands with female ministers in Nigeria.
Speaking via his Twitter page (@realFFK), Fani-Kayode accused Buhari of double standard.
U refused to shake the hands of ur female Ministers on religious grounds yet u went to Malta and gleefully shook the hand of England’s Queen

Bear in mind, the Chief Executive Officer, NECCI Limited, a public relations firm, Mrs. Nkechi Ali-Balogun, had frowned at President Buhari’s refusal to shake hands with his female ministers after their swearing-in.
She said: “It is unethical in public relations because it portrayed the female ministers as inferior in eyes of the general public.
“If Hillary Clinton (US presidential hopeful and former Secretary of State) is to visit Nigeria today, will our President refuse to shake hands with her in the name of religion?
