The Presidency has dismissed insinuations that Nigeria’s participation in the India-Africa conference holding from March 14-16 in New Delhi, has been cancelled.

A statement by Laolu Akande, Media Aide to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, said that Nigeria is being represented at the conference.

According to him, “For the avoidance of any doubt, Nigeria’s delegation to the meeting is led by Industry & Trade Minister, Dr. Okey Enelamah.

“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.”
