A former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, assaulted the dressing of All Progressive Congress vice presidential candidate Kashim Shettima at the Nigeria Bar Association conference in Lagos state.
The event, which was held on Monday, was graced by the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, the Labor Party, Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi respectively.
Shettima, who represented the APC’s flag-bearer Bola Tinubu, was dressed in a suit and tie, accompanied by a pair of sneakers, sparking reactions from social media users.
Omokri shared a photo of Shettima during the event on his Twitter page, writing: “This is Tinubu’s running mate at the NBA conference today. Look at his feet. Who in their right mind wears a suit and tie and then pulls wear a pair of sneakers to a conference?
“If Shettima doesn’t know how to dress, how can he face Nigeria’s challenges?”
One tweep, @push_move, replied: “He’s dressed for battle, sir. After the conference, he’s going into the bush.”
Another tweep, @itzz_blitz1, said: “Someone said Shettima must have changed his clothes into a car shed, just like the fake bishops did.”
‘Who gave Shettima the coat? It’s like those times when our parents gave us Christmas clothes and said, ‘Don’t worry, it’ll fit you,'” tweeted @_weyimi.
@VictorIsrael_ said: “Shettima dresses like something that runs away from Boko haram. What is this?”
“Shettima should have worn it agbada; an outfit in which he feels more comfortable,” said @general_Oluchi.
