Why I visited Kano —- Osinbajo

Published

on

Nigeria’s Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), debunked a media reports that said that his trip to Kano, Kano State on Saturday was political as untrue.

He also denied meeting with some political groups during the visit which he explained was solely to attend the wedding of his Personal Assistant, Hafiz Kawu.

The clarification was contained in a statement made available to journalists by the Senior Special Assistant to the Vice-President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Laolu Akande.

The statement further clarified that Osinbajo’s visit to the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, during the visit was a traditional courtesy call and not political.

 

The statement read, “The attention of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has been drawn to a TV news report suggesting that he was in Kano State on Saturday, 3rd of February, 2018 to meet with some political groups. This is completely false and misleading.

 

“On the contrary, the Vice-President was in Kano to attend the wedding of his Personal Assistant, Hafiz Ibrahim Kawu, which was well publicised over the weekend.

 

“On arrival, he was met by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje at the airport, and went straight to the mosque, the 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.

 

“At no time during the visit did he meet 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 had 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.”
