There are some insinuations online about Nigeria’s participation in the India-Africa conference holding from March 14-16 in New Delhi.
For the avoidance of any doubt, Nigeria’s delegation to the the meeting is led by Industry & Trade Minister, Dr. Okey Enelamah.
Yemi Osinbajo in a statement by his Senior Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, claims that it is simply untrue that an advance party from the Vice President’s office departed for India. No such thing happened because there was no such final decision to travel.
Finally, Nigerians know wherever Mr. President is, at home or abroad he acts fully in his office except if on break, indisposed or incapacitated. So the question of his traveling creating a vacuum does not even exist at all.
