However, Igbokwe noted that Shettima's outfit does not in any way take away from him the fact that he is an erudite scholar in the best tradition.
He added that the former Borno governor is a great achiever with a sense of victory and determination to succeed in life.
His post read:
"The suit is oversized but it did (not) remove anything from the erudite scholar in the best tradition.
"A great achiever with deep sense of history and determination to succeed in anything he lays his hands on."
NBA conference: What is the meaning of this? Omokri, Adeyanju, others flay Shettima’s choice of dress
Meanwhile, when spotted at the event, Nigerians flayed his choice of dress. Shettima was spotted putting on a suit and a pair of canvass.
Classifying the event as formal and corperate, a former aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, opined on Twitter:
"This is Tinubu’s running mate at the NBA Conference today. Look at his feet. Who in his right mind wears a suit and tie, and then puts on a pair of gym shoes to a conference? If Shettima does not know how to dress himself, how can he address Nigeria’s challenges?"
