The Senior Special Assistant to the president on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe has taken a swipe on former Minister for Education, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, who is now leading protesters against the government in a bid to rescue the abducted Chibok girls, for refusing to shake hands with him at the Heathrow Airport, London.

Okupe took to twitter to vent his frustration at what he termed ‘unnecessary hostility and childish’ behaviour of Ezekwesili, regretting that it is unlike of a Christian, especially a pastor’s wife. Okupe concludes that madam Eezekwesili is unfit for leadership.

Read his tweet below:

“Just met Oby at Heathrow. Went over to say hello. Shockingly she refused to say hello or shake me.! We may disagree but it ought not be personal

This unnecessary hostility of Oby is petty, childish and unbefiting of a Christian, certainly not a pastor’s wife. Oby Ezekwesili is unfit for leadership”.
