Former Nigerian leader, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, is synonymous with Adire, popular Yoruba fabric.
Since he pulled out of the military some decades ago, the Ogun State born former military president and democratically elected leader has appeared for the first time in suit with a pair of shoe to match.
As a military leader, he’s always in his Khaki, as Nigerian president from 1999 to 2007, he was always in Agbada made of Adire.
His home state of Ogun is known for Adire fabric, particularly Owu, and Abeokuta are known for the fabric.
According to report, the former leader during a visit to Vietnam, the Nigerian leader joined Hailemariam Desalegn Boshe, former Ethiopian prime minister, and other dignitaries to showcase the works of Chuong, a gifted Asian tailor, based in Hanoi, capital of Vietnam.
Dressed in suits, the visitors stepped into the showroom of Chuong, who was awarded “Tailoring Artist” by the state council of Vietnam based on his skills.
Beaming with smiles, Obasanjo posed for photographs.
We hope to see him in more suit.
