Dolapo, the wife of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, has questioned her husband for allegedly taking photographs with strippers.
The Vice President revealed this in a keynote address he delivered on Wednesday at a conference put together by the BBC at the Congress Hall of Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja.
At the conference, with focus on: “Countering Fake News,” Osinbajo recalled a recent conversation between him and his wife on the issue, adding that fake news may sometimes cost its victims marital peace.
Giving details, Osinbajo said: “I got a call in the office from my wife about three or four weeks ago and she said, ‘Yemi, what are you doing with strippers?’ I said, ‘What do you mean strippers?’ She said, ‘No stripper, people who strip.’
“So there has been this story in a very famous blog that said ‘Osinbajo caught with strippers’. And there was a photograph of me standing between two perfectly clothed ladies by the way. But just underneath it, the same ladies now not wearing much, wearing very little. As it turns out, I had, in fact, take photographs with these two ladies at an entertainment event when they were perfectly clothed. But by the time the story was put out, it was though I had also taken a photograph with them at the time they were not clothed at all.”
“Beyond Fake News” is an initiative launched by the BBC in November 2018, aimed at finding ways to address misinformation through events, media literacy programmes, and journalistic reports.
Toyosi Ogunseye, BBC Head of West Africa, and Jamie Angus, Editorial Director of BBC Global News Limited, spoke at the event.
