Flashback: Shettima Condemns Clamour For Restructuring [Video]

The vice presidential candidate of All Progressive Congress (APC), Kashima Shettima, recent outfit has generated reactions on social media.

In the photos that surfaced social media, Shettima donned the signature ‘Red Cap’ and the White ‘Npor’ which are traditionally worn by the Igbo men to a recent event.

However, the attire did not sit well with some Nigerians on social media who went on to slam the VP for outright disrespect towards the Igbos.

According to the displeased Nigerians, only persons with chieftancy title are allowed to don such attire in Igbo land.
