The son of Nigeria’s president, Seyi Tinubu, has caused a huge stir on social media over his expensive Ricard Mille wristwatch.

This comes after Seyi, in a post via his social media page, appealed to Nigerians amidst the current hardship being faced in the country.

Seyi shared a photo of himself appearing to be deep in thought and accompanied it with a caption where he echoed a quote from his father, President Bola Tinubu, who preached endurance and patience to Nigerians.

However, shortly after Seyi’s endurance message, some netizens started criticising him over a photo of him rocking an expensive Richard Mille wristwatch.

An online search shows that the designer accessory is worth $210,000 to $2,578,000, which is equivalent to N346,500,000, and many Nigerians frowned at how hypocritical it was for Seyi to calm their feelings while walking around with such an expensive watch.
