Laolu Akande, the Senior Special Assistant-Media & Publicity to Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo has cleared the air while reacting to the list of about 35 aides sacked by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Akande who used the opportunity to apologise to a photographer that was attacked by security said that the so-called list of sacked presidential aides is not genuine.
He took to Twitter and wrote:
"The needless scuffle btw a villa accredited photographer, Mr. Adeshida & one of our security aides earlier today has since been resolved. Incident is regretted & I have apologized to him for any embarrassment caused. Also, a list circulating in the media on d so-called sacked presidential aides is not genuine and ought to be ignored."
