Laolu Akande, The Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, to the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has claimed his boss has now become a political target in Nigeria.
He made this bold claim during an Instagram Live Session with former Nigerian presidential candidate, Dele Momodu. In his submission, he said;
“It is ridiculous and incredible some of the types of stories that are out there. What I have found out is that being the vice-president and being a very active vice-president that understands how to connect with the people, that rising profile itself, in a political atmosphere that is extremely murky, I think those who have all kinds of unscrupulous ideas, people with despicable agenda have reasons to try to smear the person that is holding that office.
Like I said, because of the position that he holds, next to the President and because of all the kinds of imaginations that people have to think about him, I think, up to a point, he has become a kind of a political target.”
