APC Vice-Presidential candidate, former Senator Kashim Shettima , has finally commented about his controversial Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) conference outfit.
Picture of Alhaji Kashim Shettima which was taken during the opening ceremony of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, annual conference in Lagos on Monday had become a meme.
Shettima had represented the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu while the event was also attended by PDP Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and LP Presidential Candidate, Mr Peter Obi.
Social media users in Nigeria had given Shettima the verdict of ‘not properly dressed’. They had also submitted that he did not choose the right footwear.
They had obviously expected that being an event that would be attended by lawyers across the country, the invited guests ought to have been immaculately dressed.
Former president Goodluck Johnathan’s aide, Reno Omokri, was one of the social media users that made comments about what Shettima wore to the event.
Pulsenews gathered the picture of Shetima that was taken during the event had also become a meme while also featuring the ‘Twitter Challenge’.
Tie being a powerful accessory will definitely show when someone is in a standing or sitting position and this could be embarrassing unless it is appropriately positioned.
Commenting about the NBA Conference outfit , Shettima has said he deliberately wore the sneakers.
He also alleged that an unnamed Presidential Candidate had taken mischievous actions ahead of the event.
‘I was in Lagos for the NBA conference. The conference held at Eko Hotels. It was largely funded by the Lagos State Government, the APC government of Lagos state. Subsequently, they moved to Eko Atlantic City, a product of an idea conceived by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
When I sent my recce team, it was learned that one of the presidential candidates’ team held meetings for three consecutive nights to commit mischief. I was told it was a hostile crowd. I’m a banker, trained by one of the best bankers in the world. I’m a Jim Ovia boy. I deliberately wore sneakers to the NBA to swam through them’ he said.
