Reports of Osinbajo’s Valentine’s Day trip false, mischievous – Presidency

Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Vice President of Nigeria
By Ebuka Onyeji

The Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, has debunked rumours of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s foreign trip to celebrate Valentine’s Day with wife, Dolapo.

Mr. Akande said in a statement that the couple was in Abuja on February 14, and never travelled to any country to mark the day.

“Our attention has been drawn to some erroneous reports and claims on the internet regarding the whereabouts of the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, and his wife, Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo on February 14, 2016 – Valentine’s Day.

“For the avoidance of any doubt, the vice president and his wife were in Abuja on the said date.

“In fact, they both attended worship service earlier in the day at the Aso Rock Villa Chapel alongside several other Nigerians, including my humble self.

“Claims that the vice president and his wife spent Valentine’s Day anywhere outside the country is both false and mischievous.

“Such incorrect and untrue reports should be utterly dismissed and completely ignored,” Mr. Akande said.

      Yes oo !

    Will Buhari even allow his houseboy to travel?

      A houseboy that your father or anybody in your family will never be equal to in life !

      A real Prince will not even call himself prince (omooba) before people will know he is a prince because the princedom glory will ordinarily reflect in him. What I can see reflecting from your comment is foolishness that could only be seen in bastards.

    I hope the office of the vice president sues the author of this mischievous hoax and compell him to put things right through the media. Sahara Reporter first published it just yesterday.

    Laolu, you get time o responding to wailing wailers because Osibajo decided to have some private moments, wherever he chose to, with his wife away from the prying eyes of the wailers.
