On Tuesday in Abuja, at the national awards ceremony, Paystack co-founder Ezra Olubi made an impression on President Muhammadu Buhari.
Along with his co-founder Shola Akinlade, Olubi received the honorary title of Officer of the Order of Niger.
Olubi was dressed in a black outfit with pleats running down the front from the neckline. He also used makeup, including lipstick.
Buhari grinned as he presented Olubi with the award, but he didn’t stop staring at him as he sat back down.
The reaction of the president has been trending on social media.
Here are some reactions below:
Buhari could not contain his shock at Ezra's (co founder of Paystack) dressing after presenting him with an award !
Left for Buhari, he could collect that award back
