A former aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has said that the All Progressives Congress, APC, Vice-Presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima dressed the way he did to the Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, to take the attention of Nigerians away from Bola Tinubu.
Omokri in a post on his social media account stated that as a former banker, Shettima had better dress sense but intentionally chose to sway attention with his dress.
According to Omokri, Shettimma, a former governor of Borno State, intentionally dressed to distract Nigerians from the party’s candidate, Bola Tinubu Ahmed Tinubu who may have travelled to Paris for medical attention.
Omokri said, “Everybody is talking about him. But nobody noticed that Tinubu may have sneaked out of Nigeria to fix his health in Paris.
“I am a deep thinker. I even think in my sleep. Too often, I have suddenly woken up in the early hours of the morning with a solution, or insight, to a challenge or puzzle, or riddle my mind was ideating upon.
“And knowing what I know about Senator Kashim Shettima, it was obvious to me that he knew better than to dress so shabbily to an event that the nation had been focusing on. He is a former banker. He is used to corporate dressing. He knows how to wear a suit and tie with the right pairs of shoes.
“As a matter of fact, I Googled him, and behold, there was not one, but five photos of him properly suited up in well-fitting suits, with the right button buttoned, and shod with the appropriate pair of shoes, including the power dressing he projected when he gave an interview to CNN.
“You see, when something is too obvious, then it may not be as obvious as we think. My intel on Shettima is that, like me, he is also a deep thinker. And unlike me, I am informed that he is very calculating. He is not vain. He is capable of looking the fool and wearing a poker face if it will help him pull off a classic sleight of hand!
