Yul Edochie comes under fire for comment on ‘Shettima Dressing Challenge’

Yul Edochie

Nollywood movie star, Yul Edochie has condemned the ongoing challenge mocking the outfit of the All Progressives Congress, APC, vice presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima.

Meziesblog reports that photos of the former Borno State governor, who attended the NBA conference in Lagos on Monday, have been trending on all social media platforms.

Nigerians on Tuesday began the #ShettimaChallenge to recreate the outfit of the APC presidential flag bearer, Bola Tinubu’s running mate. Former presidential aide Reno Omokri and some other social media influencers have joined the challenge.

Reacting, Yul in a tweet on his Twitter handle described the development as a misplaced priority, wondering why Nigerians are bothered about dressing amid the numerous challenges facing the nation.

He wrote, “Nigerians & misplaced priorities. They’ll never trend important issues, only frivolities. Who cares about Shettima’s dressing?

“If the next President of Nigeria can fix the country, secure it and make Nigeria work. He can be wearing only boxers and a singlet to work. Who cares?”

He also questioned why young people couldn’t create the #PeterObi challenge.

He went on to encourage them to become as smart and as outspoken as Peter Obi.
