Bernard Kaigama took to his FB page to write about his recent encounter with a fruit seller in Yola, Adamawa state, who is well known for wearing suit and tie to the market to sell his goods.
When Bernard asked him why he dressed so corporate to the market, the man said he always admired bankers and their dress codes and that since he cannot become a banker due to his educational qualification, he might as well just keep up by dressing like them. Read what Bernard wrote below:
‘Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them… This man is a fruit seller in Yola Nigeria around roundabout Mai Doki. I asked him, why dress like this? He replied, “anytime I go to the Bank for transaction I do admire the way the bankers dress, so this is my office and since I don’t have the hope of being a banker one-day… let me also dress like one. Anytime I dress like this it makes me to also have a sense of importance.”
