The vice-presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Kashim Shettima, has said that he deliberately wore sneakers to the Nigeria Bar Association conference on Monday.

At the event, Mr Shettima represented the APC presidential flag bearer, Bola Tinubu.

Shettima, a former governor of Borno State, became the butt of internet jokes after his photograph of him wearing an oversized black suit and red tie, accompanied by pair of gym sneakers, which has stirred reactions from social media users.

Justifying his outfit in a video clip shared on social media on Thursday he said, “I was in Lagos for the NBA conference. It was held in 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. One of the presidential candidates, his team held meetings for three consecutive nights to commit mischief. When 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 mock (sic) at them,” he said in a trending video.
