Seyi Tinubu, the son of Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress has been spotted wearing a designer watch worth $550,000 (N340 millon)
Since the photo surfaced, tongues have been wagging online.
According to the report by Peoples Gazette, Mr Tinubu, 36, was noticed in a March 24 Instagram post sporting the Richard Mille RM 055 as he met with some people that appeared to be his staff members. The watch was part of the custom series on sale in the name of professional golfer and Masters giant Bubba Watson.
While flaunting the .34 billion naira watch, Mr Tinubu asked his followers to “Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender; it’s holy ground. There’s no greater investment.”
Jewellery expert Edward Garvey told Peoples Gazette that Mr Tinubu’s watch had been sold for more than $680,000 at a point since it was introduced by the top Swiss brand in 2011.
Mr Tinubu’s exquisite preference seemed writ large across his Instagram page: he has posted photos of himself playing polo or spending the weekend in Lake Como.
Being the son of Bola Tinubu, the ruling APC presidential candidate notorious for looting Lagos’ public treasury with impunity, Nigerians could not help but be astonished by Seyi Tinubu’s exorbitant display of wealth, especially at a time of historic unemployment and abject poverty racking residents of the nation’s commercial capital.
