Granted, politics can be boring, save for when lawmakers are getting into fisticuffs on the floor of the National Assembly or when a lawmaker goes rogue and decides to expose the corrupt dealings of his colleagues.
Like politics, politicians are generally presumed to be uniteresting, un-cool and unfashionable.
But then, every generalization has exceptions and while most politicians hardly bother to pay too much attention to their fashion, some of them deserve commendation for putting effort into their style.
Here are 10 of such polticians.

President Muhammadu Buhari didn’t just win our hearts when he contested to be elected in 2015 and eventually won, he also won for his eccentric fashion sense.
So much that the topic of his smart dressing remained side by side in the news [together] with his agenda for change in Nigeria.
The president, even after, has proven that his knack for fine fashion wasn’t just a campaign strategy but an actual interest. More-so, he has made sure, with his signature traditional wear in their many varieties and colours, he pridefully displays this aspect of him wherever in the world he goes to, without as much as a tinge of complexity.
Though rarely, he equally exudes elegance and a dapper look when he dons on a suit.
