  • Nigerians sef with their dressing mentality! Come to abroad, you will see a white man on suit but with canvass or slippers and no body cares. I know if its nigeria people will mock at him. Nigerians are too materialistic, that is why our leaders always end up as criminals.

  • If it is American president, it will turn to a fashion statement. Fashion depends on your self esteem not what people think.

  • I personally think that this subject has neither anything to do with materialism nor a useless mentality in any sense of the word. To the effect that there now seems to be a kind of breakdown of cultural or national barriers, it doesn’t tend to be an awful thing anymore for one to wear a socks on a native attire. But looking at it critically, it is absurd because there seems to be a conflict between the fact that the attire in question is traditional or native while the socks is Western. However, there is what is known as an idiosyncracy, which in some sense is the non-conventional way a particular person does his/her own things; it’s usually a form of behavioural deviation from the norm but which is not criminal. So, Mr President may’ve that as his own idiosyncracy; his very own pattern; and it’s okay because he commits no crime by doing that. But I won’t do that on a good day nor wear a shoe with a buckle or lace on a traditional or native attire. Conclusively, I make bold to say that having a good dress sense isn’t synonymous with being ostentatious or flamboyant. You can wear clothes that are inexpensive and still look very impressionable and dazzling if you’ve got a good dress sense. That’s my take on the subject. Cheers.

  • there is nothing wrong in wearing socks on native. however, which fashion law says socks shouldn’t be worn on native? if no one has ever done that in Nigeria then GEJ is the first person and we must accord him that award
