Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s media aide, Laolu Akande has urged Nigerians to ignore those spreading fake news about the second citizen’s whereabouts.
The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the Vice President disclosed this in an Instagram post on Saturday.
He shared a photo of himself with Osinbajo in the Presidential Villa with the caption: “With my boss, the Vice President last night in his office, reviewing some of the events of the week.
“By the way, please continue to ignore professional fake news conduits who share fictions about the whereabouts of the President and Vice President.
“The critical mass of our people see both the President and the VP regularly on TV, hear about them on radio, read from them in the press and observe their activities regularly on the Social Media.
“For instance on Thursday the VP held a videoconferencing meeting that included the Governor of Kaduna, Power and Finance ministers, the CBN Governor and other government officials on how to expand electricity in the country.
“The work goes on, and Nigeria will surely prevail. We shall do it together! Enjoy your weekend.”
The Herald can report that the teleconferencing meeting Akande referred to as chaired by Osinbajo was on Presidential Power Reform.
