Is there anything wrong with Mrs Buhari trying to shake hands with Alaafin of Oyo? (Photos)

The Alaafin’s official Facebook page shared
these photos of Mrs Buhari trying to shake the
hands of the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi
Olayiwola Adeyemi, during an event at University
of Maiduguri last week. As you can see, the
Alaafin refused to stretch his hands and accept
her handshake. Personally, I don’t know what it
means, but many suggested it was disrespectful
for the wife of the president to greet the Alaafin
that way…

Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose’s media aide,
Lere Olayinka, commenting on the photos on
Twitter wrote, “Can Aisha Buhari greet the Emir
of Daura with a handshake as she is doing here
to the Iku Baba Yeye, Alaafin of Oyo?
Another twitter user @segalink, wrote “Sacrilege;
how uncouth can you be, trying to shake the
Alaafin? Do you shake your Emirs?”
What do you guys think?
