Seyi Tinubu, the son of Nigeria’s President Bola Tinubu, has sparked controversy on social media after being spotted wearing an expensive Richard Mille wristwatch. The uproar comes in the wake of Seyi’s online appeal for Nigerians to endure the country’s current hardships, echoing his father’s message of patience and resilience.

In a post shared on his social media page, Seyi Tinubu appeared pensive, echoing his father’s sentiments of endurance amidst Nigeria’s challenges. However, the mood swiftly shifted as netizens scrutinized a photo of Seyi donning the luxurious timepiece, with prices ranging from $210,000 to $2,578,000, equivalent to N346,500,000. Many Nigerians criticized the apparent dissonance between Seyi’s message of endurance and his flaunting of extravagant wealth.

Online reactions poured in, reflecting a mix of frustration and disillusionment with the perceived hypocrisy. Users like @OjiUgo_nwa expressed skepticism about the Tinubu family’s intentions, while others, such as @achieverwealth, sarcastically remarked on the perceived misallocation of resources, equating the watch’s value to potential infrastructure investments.

Critics like @akalonu_tonn questioned the appropriateness of such opulence in light of Seyi’s familial ties, drawing comparisons to professions typically associated with luxury purchases. Meanwhile, @Famouz_Fm highlighted the stark contrast between the watch’s price tag and the socio-economic realities in parts of Nigeria, underscoring broader concerns about wealth inequality and resource distribution.

The incident has reignited debates about political elites’ responsibilities in a country grappling with economic challenges, prompting calls for transparency and accountability. As Seyi Tinubu’s social media activity continues to draw scrutiny, it underscores the complexities of navigating public perception amidst a backdrop of socio-political turbulence.
