I didn”t visit Kano for politics–Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has dismissed a report that he was in Kano State on Saturday to meet with some political groups.



Osinbajo, in a statement on Monday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity Mr Laolu Akande, described the report as completely false and misleading.



The vice president clarified that he was in the state to attend the wedding ceremony of his personal assistant, Hafiz Ibrahim Kawu.


Osinbajo said on his arrival at the Kano airport, he was met by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and went straight to the venue of the wedding.


The vice president added that he later paid the traditional courtesy call on the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, before proceeding to the airport.


He said at no time, during the visit, did he meet with any political group or groups, stating that any attempt to give the impression that he was in Kano for a political purpose was mischievous and should be disregarded.



He said he had in the past few weeks met with the Kano All Progressives Congress leadership in Abuja to ensure unity and full cooperation among party leaders.
