Education Minister Adamu Adamu Shuns Women Who Approached Him For Handshake In Honour Of Islamic Teachings

The current minister of education has come under fire for refusing to hand shake women during a function in Abuja.

According to a Twitter user,@ keneike, Mallam Adamu Adamu was said to have shunned some women who approached him for a handshake at a function that held at NUC Abuja on Tuesday the 9th of May 2017.

He was said to have raised his hand just like Akiolu did to Ooni of Ife last week.

While some claim it’s inappropriate, others said he might have done that due to his religious belief that forbids handshake with opposite sex.

In the past, Adamu Adamu was seeing shaking men’s hand so the only issue is the opposite sex.

Shaking hands (and touching) members of the opposite sex when not related, is not permissible for Muslims according to the teachings of Islam.

Islamic scholars can explain this better.
