Nigerians on Twitter picked on APC’s vice presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima for what many called a poor outfit.
The former Borno State Governor made an appearance on behalf of his principal at the on-going Nigerian Bar Association Annual General Conference holding in Lagos.
The 2022 NBA AGM is themed “Bold Transitions” and its General Conference is expected to hold between August 19 to 26, with the opening ceremony happening Monday.
Shettima who was dressed in a three-buttoned black suit, also wore a red tie which he paired with sneakers shoe.
Nigerians on Twitter found his dressing too old fashioned and his mean looks too serious.
A tweep said:
Rules for three-button jacket/suit:
1. Always leave top and middle buttons buttoned;
2. Don't button the bottom button.
Shettima failed the rule. It is understandable. pic.twitter.com/DyZt2yMzfy

Chude noted that Tinubu’s absence shows he’s just a place holder for Shettima.
Tinubu absence from The NBA conference further reinforces the popular Opinion that Tinubu is just a presidential placeholder for his Vice President Shettima. Scary!
Tinubu is weak and Senile, he can’t stand the stress of leading a country like Nigeria. Vote Wisely!

Nigerians have indeed rejected Bola Ahmed Tinubu. His Vice Presidential Candidate, Kashim Shettima, representing him at the 62nd Nigerian Bar Association conference, is being ignored by lawyers with lots of noise and side conversations as his speech is ongoing.

The absence of Bola Ahmed Tinubu was also talked of, as many said his house is not too far from the venue of the conference and therefore had no reason to miss it.

Tinubu can attend functions like burial, weddings, visiting obasanjo and other apc governors but become afraid when it's time to attend conferences to tell Nigerians Y he want to become a president.
