Ismaila Ashipa, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ibadan, Oyo state, has shown his gratitude to a former All Progressives Congress, APC, lawmaker for gifting him him a branded Bola Ahmed Tinubu (BAT) sandal.
However, Ashipa stated that he would not be wearing the sandals because he is Atikulated.
Sharing a photo of the sandals via Facebook the chieftain stated that he won’t be wearing the palm sandals.
He wrote: “Won’t Need It. But Thanks. I opened a Jummia delivery box just now to unwrap a gift, a branded BAT palm sandal, sent by a brotherly friend (APC) from Lagos state, an ex Senator (you should know him).
“I appreciate the taunt but disappointedly, I won’t wear them. Thanks but I am still Atikulated.”
Some Facebook users have reacted to Ashipa’s comment about the gift.
Adebayo Mutalubi Ojo: “Baba Ashipa, pls send it to me. I will wear it.”
