Away From Fashion: How Shettima thrilled Audience at NBA Conference

The fashion outlook of the vice-presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Kashim Shettima at the 62nd Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA in Lagos has generated so much heated debate, to say the least.  

The former governor of Borno was heavily mocked, especially on social media, for wearing a long, big three-button-56-size coat; a turn-up baggy trousers; a long red tie that was showing below the belly; and a pair of gym sneakers to the NBA event. This was a really huge turn-off for many people at the corporate level conference of high power functionaries.  

But, away from fashion misgivings, what was not widely reported is how Shettima thrilled the audience with a brilliant speech. With facts, figures and eloquence he attended to the myriad of challenges confronting the Nigerian nation and proffered solutions using the unmatched milestones recorded by himself and Lagos state under the leadership of Bola Tinubu.

Aside from the fact that his speech was motivational, Shettima’s speech was reassuring, motivational and empirical just as it touched on the pain points of the common Nigerians, which include pertinently the economy and insecurity.  

Shettima also cited his track records and successes as examples of their capabilities and capacities to lead a prosperous Nigeria that will compete favourably with the developed nations of the world and leave a good leadership legacy for other nations of the African continent to imbibe.  

The APC vice presidential candidate’s speech was so impressive and captivating that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, had to acknowledge Shettima’s ingenuity by clapping from where he seated.   

There’s a conception that 2023 is Nigeria’s decisive year, and that the election is critical to the country’s existence. 

In this light, Shettima, in his speech, gave an assurance that his combination with the APC presidential candidate, Tinubuwill replicate the “wonders” they performed when they were governors of Borno and Lagos states respectively. 

Shettima discusses our Challenges and proffers solutions simultaneously using the state already governed by Tinubu and himself as examples of their capabilities and capacities.  

His speech also addressed insecurity, dwindling economy, ecology, revenue generation means and the kind of leadership that will help Nigeria change its tractecory towards attaining its full potential. 

He said, if elected, Tinubu-Shettima will hit the ground running from day one.
