POLITICS: The Man BUHARI, His Religion, Women & Handshakin

I got to know some of the RULES in Islam the day I was invited to attend a book launch at Oshodi Central Mosque Lagos State. On that day, I mistakenly sat with women, the IMAN quickly asked me to leave the women CORNER and sit with men which I did. Islam forbids too much contact with the opposite sex. In as much as we all have the right to religion, personal thoughts and belief as enshrined in the constitution, religion should be separated from the norms of the State especially in a multi-religious country like Nigeria.
With the ways the president is embedding his religious tenets in political affairs, it wouldn’t be wrong if anyone accuse him of Islamizing the country. Government and leadership is guided by Public Relations ethics, the president’s act of not shaking women on his cabinet inauguration day is unethical in public administration.
The female ministers including the pretty Aisha Alhassan did not shake him but male ministers shook hands with him. This act also violates gender equality rights and makes women look inferior.

His aids should be bold enough to correct him when he is wrong. Once again, the president should separate politics from religion.

Endy i thought you went to school,or is it cos you are a christian?Does shaking of hands between men and women shows equality in ur murky brain?Do u even knows what equality means?So,according to ur half baked reasoning,Buhari will be 'Islamizing' Nigeria if he continues his' act of not shaking wowen's hands.

@john & sharafadeen, i don't expect you to insult me for raising alarm in a national issue that concerns us all. what i'm saying is "he should always separate his personal belief from official activities. where did i get it wrong?

Endy sorry if that has seem to you an insult but let get this straight religion and politics in Nigeria can in no way be separated...take for example you and i who as christians were have such rules in our christian religion, would you refuse not to observe it, sincerely speaking i would certainly observe so as to divert spiritual consequences which are far more severe than that the general public would issue towards you!

Errvry thing uv said ryt, buh u spoild it by writting "seperate religion from politics"... Abortion is religiously wrong, gay marriage is also religiously wrong, so you see, religion is one of the thing keeping the nation nigeria from d rot of God and lust of the world... If na to shake woman go make am go hell then i support him, NOTE am no muslim....

Aiki Olusola

Eddy, are you aware that the two women you are referring to are also muslims? What proof do you have that it is the president that refuse to shake the women and it is not these women that dont shake men? A simple google search will show you several pictures of the President shaking Hand with the opposite sex and if you are too lazy to do this search, I can help you, just click this link: http://www.nairaland.com/2319857/buhari-no-problem-shaking-hands
Because it is free to post on facebook doesn't mean you should be posting rubbish or stuff that you didnt verify.

Endy Edeson. Am a good follower of your online news and a good Christian. But I disagree with this your post. Please always do your research and background check very well before you post them here. It is very shameful that you can post this here. ‪#‎Iamjustsayingmymind‬

@PRINCE: thanks but it's my opinion, what i think should always be the best. this post is not to either incite or excite any group. @aiki: i know. it's not that i've not seen it. you all watched the inauguration of the ministers on TV, it's a vivid example of what i'm talking about. some people shouldn't be treated separately. @adeniran: i'm not anti-buhari. i praise the president when he scores. i'm a social critic not anti-govt.
