The Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has sparked a slew of controversy on the Nigerian social media after he was pictured wearing a jacket atop ‘agabda.’
Agbada is one of the names for a flowing wide sleeved robe worn by men in mostly West Africa region.
The minister, who paid a guided tour to Real Madrid Stadium, Santiago Barnabeu, Madrid, Spain was lensed wearing a flowing skyblue cloloured agbada with a dust grey jacket on top and a traditional cap.
Some Nigerians, who were stunned at the minister’s sense of dressing, called for immediate psychiatrist test on him.
Some reactions below.
