Omokri, others knock Shettima’s outfit at NBA conference
At the Nigeria Bar Association Conference in Lagos State, a former presidential adviser named Reno Omokri criticized Kashim Shettima, the APC’s candidate for vice president.
The event, held on Monday, was graced by the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar and Labour Party, Peter Obi, respectively.
Shettima, who stood in for Bola Tinubu, the APC’s standard bearer, wore a black suit with a red tie and a pair of gym shoes, which sparked outrage on social media.
Omokri posted a photo of Shettima from the occasion along with the caption, “This is Tinubu’s running mate at the NBA Conference today. Observe his feet. Who in their right mind shows up to a conference in a suit and tie and then changes into a pair of gym shoes?
“If Shettima does not know how to dress himself, how can he address Nigeria’s challenges?”
A tweep, @push_move, responded, saying, “He is dressed for combat sir. After the conference, he is entering the bush.”
Another tweep, @itzz_blitz1, said, “Someone said Shettima must have changed his clothes in a car booth just like the fake bishops did.”
“Who gave Shettima the coat? It looks like those times our parents gave us Christmas clothes and said, ‘Don’t worry, it will fit you’,” @_weyimi tweeted.
@VictorIsrael_ said, “Shettima is dressing like something that’s running away from Boko Haram. What’s this?”
“Shettima should have worn agbada; an outfit he feels more comfortable in,” @general_Oluchi said.
