Nigeria’s youngest House of Assembly Speaker snubs woman’s handshake, sparks controversy (PHOTOS)

The speaker of Katsina State House of Assembly, Aliyu Sabiu Muduru, 34, has sparked a heated argument online after being pictured allegedly snubbing the handshake of a woman.
The politician is pictured smiling while keeping his hand to himself.

A media consultant, Na-Allah Mohammed Zagga, shared the photo on Facebook as he condemned the act.

The picture has sparked controversy. 

Find below his opinion and reactions by his followers:

“You're crazy with joy that the Speaker of the Katsina State House of Assembly spurned a handshake from a woman and you are all over the place celebrating his piety or religious devotion. Is good governance measured by these political publicity stunts? Politicians are con artists who can skilfully use religion for a political advantage. The clerics would praise them for these publicity stunts, but they won't criticise them for poor performance.

“The other day, Governor Yari of Zamfara State claimed that the outbreak of meningitis was a punishment from God because of the people's fornication. Instead of outrage, the clerics validated his logic. Yari would also have been praised for refusing to shake hands with a member of the opposite gender, but he won't be criticized for not responding to medical emergency or providing basic services for which he was elected. Indeed, Karl Marx was right that religion is the opium of the masses. That is why it isn't surprising how politicians manipulate religion to arrest our intelligence.”
