For those asking for the whereabouts of Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, there is a quick answer – he is on the frontline fighting to lift the nation’s economy in the face of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) scourge.

This was the response of his Spokesperson, Mr Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Office of the Vice President, urging caution in the spread of Fake News.

Akande, admonished Nigerians to move on with their lives, as both Osinbajo and President Muhammadu Buhari were quite okay and doing their jobs, stating that Nigerians should disregard any question about their whereabouts.

Specifically, the Vice Presidential Spokesperson said that Osinbajo has been attending to official matters on how to improve Nigeria’s economy adding that the VP on Thursday met with the Governor of Central Bank(CBN), Kaduna State Governor, and some Ministers via video conferencing.

Akande Instagram posts reads: “With my boss, the Vice President last night in his office, reviewing some of the events of the week.

“By the way, continue to ignore professional fake news conduits who share fictions about the whereabouts of the president and his Vice.

“The critical mass of our people sees both the President and the Vice President regularly on television, hear about them regularly on radio, read from them in the press and observe their activities regularly on the social media.

“For instance, on Thursday the Vice President held a videoconferencing meeting that included the Governor of Kaduna, Power and Finance Ministers, the CBN governor and other government officials on how to expand electricity in the country.

“The work goes on, and Nigeria will surely prevail. We will do it together.”

Lately, some reports have raised concerns about the whereabouts of Osinbajo since the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic.

Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, had recently explained that Osinbajo had been busy working with the Economic Sustainability Committee (ESC).

The ESC was constituted by President Buhari on March 30 to develop a clear economic sustainability plan until 2023.

The committee was tasked with identifying fiscal and monetary measures to enhance oil and non-oil revenues in order to fund the plan; develop a stimulus package and come up with measures to create more jobs while keeping existing ones.
