Special Adviser to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, has denied online reports that traditional rulers in the Niger Delta walked out on the VP during a meeting with them on Monday January 16th.

Osinbajo had visited the region to chart new ways of restoring peace to the region as well as find solutions to the under development in that area despite the presence of oil.

It was reported online that the Niger Delta rulers whom he had a meeting with, walked out on him after they accused him of treating them shabbily. His media aide took to twitter to deny the report.
