CITIZENS COMPASS– KASHIM Shettima, Vice Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC has explained the rationale behind his outfit to the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Conference in Lagos State.
Recall that the social media was awash when he represented APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, in an outfit clad in sneakers and a long tie on a piece of suit, on Monday, August 21, 2022.
The Vice Presidential candidate who justified himself in a video clip shared on social media on Thursday, 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 them.”
