#Inauguration2019: Twitter users scold Oshiomhole for breaching protocol [Video]


The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, has become a trending topic on Twitter after he breached protocol during the 2019 Inauguration ceremony at the Eagle Square on Wednesday.

The excited Oshiomhole who stood by the CJN had hoped to shake hands with President Muhammadu Buhari when he passes through but was ordered to return to his seat by the Commander Guards Brigade, Brig. Gen Umar Musa.

The clip which was captured on live TV broadcast has since generated criticisms on Twitter with many rebuking the APC national chairman for being too forward.

Many also accused him over being overzealous adding that he was a governor for eight years, therefore, he should be familiar with official protocols.

Some also described the moment as a “huge national embarrassment” while using memes to describe Oshiomhole’s reaction when he was sternly ordered off the red carpet were other key government officials stood.
