Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has denied a TV news report suggesting that he was in Kano State on Saturday, February 3, 2018 to meet with some political groups, saying that this is completely false and misleading.
On the contrary, a statement by the spokesman, Laolu Akande said the vice president was in Kano to attend the wedding ceremony of his personal assistant, Hafiz Ibrahim Kawu, which was well publicised over the weekend.
According to him, on arrival, he was met by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje at the airport, and went straight to the mosque, venue of the Wedding Nikhai. After that, he paid the traditional courtesy call on the Emir of Kano, His Royal Highness, Muhammadu Sanusi II, and proceeded back to the airport.
He said, “At no time during the visit did he met with any political group or groups. Any attempt to give the impression that he was in Kano for a political purpose is mischievous and should be disregarded.
“Indeed, the vice president has in the past few weeks met in Abuja with the Kano APC leadership to ensure unity and full cooperation among party leaders, and this has also been well reported in the media.
