The presidential running mate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Senator Kashim Shettima explains his reason for putting on sneakers to the 62nd Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) conference.
According to The Nation, the Attire worn by Shettima at the NBA conference had stirred reactions online, as people engaged in a humorous challenge with which they mimicked the vice presidential candidate on Social Media with the trend tagged as “Shettimachallenge “.
Reacting to the trend, Shettima revealed he wore the sneakers intentionally to “snub at the hostile audience.”
“When I sent my recon team, one of the presidential candidates, he funded his agents, they held meeting for three nights consequently, to plan mischief.”
“When I was told that it was a hostile crowd – I am a banker, trained by one of the best bankers in the world. I am a Jim Ovia boy – I deliberately wore sneakers to snub at them,” He said.
He also noted that the Lagos State Government was primarily responsible for funding the NBA conference.
“The conference was held at the Eko Hotel, which was largely funded by the Lagos State Government. Subsequently, they moved to Atlantic City, a product of an idea by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu,” he said.
