Seems like people are seeking more 'innovative' ways to draw attention to their businesses in order to make more money than they used to.
There is a popular saying 'dress the way you want to be addressed' and the man in the photos below has shown that he wants to be taken seriously as a business man.
The man, fruit seller identified as Hassan, decided to adopt the strategy of dressing in a complete suit and tie even though he doesn't work in a corporate organisation, as he believes that will cause people to take him more seriously as that's his 'office'.
The man who sells fruits at the Mai Doki roundabout in Yola, Adamawa state, caught a Facebook user's attention while dressed in his suit, and when asked why he chose to dress in that manner, revealed that it made him 'have a sense of importance.'

"Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them...This man is a fruit seller in Yola, Nigeria, around roundabout Mai Doki. I asked him, why dress like this? He replied, "anytime I go to the bank for transaction I do admire the way the bankers dress, so this is my office and since I don't have the hope of being a banker one-day... let me also dress like one. Anytime I dress like this it makes me to also have a sense of importance."
