Ibadan, Oyo state – Ismaila Ashipa, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ibadan, Oyo state, has thanked an unnamed former APC senator for gifting him a “branded BAT palm sandal”. BAT is coined from the initials of the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu
The eight shape on the sandals is engraved in Tinubu’s custom cap style which he has been using for years.
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has rocked his specially engraved, sideways facing, number eight caps for years. No one else wears anything close to it.
“It has so often been said that the oval shaped eight on the cap match his glasses; a sure way of slaying effortlessly,” Daily Independent wrote in a 2018 report
In a Facebook post, Ashipa commended the APC chieftain whom he described as a brotherly friend for the gift but said he won’t wear the sandals. The PDP chieftain said he is backing former vice president Atiku Abubakar to emerge Nigeria’s president in 2023. He shared a photo of the gift with the caption: “Won’t Need It. But Thanks.
“I appreciate the taunt but disappointedly, I won’t wear them. Thanks but I am still Atikulated.”
