He said in a statement that there was typographical error in the talking point circulated to journalists at the end of the National Economic Council (NEC) meeting.
According to him, the aspect of ‘house of the vice president’ in the talking point should have read ‘houses of VIPs’.
The statement reads: “A press briefing note circulated today by the Secretariat of the
National Economic Council, NEC, contains a typo on the very last line of the last paragraph.
“That paragraph should read ‘The Vice President also disclosed that security reports has it that scavengers are now being prepared by insurgents to dump refuse laden with bombs in the houses of VIPs.’
“The last line erroneously says ‘in the house of the Vice President.’ Please take note of the correction.
“The 59th NEC meeting was presided over by the Vice President, Prof.Yemi Osinbajo, earlier Thursday,” it stated.
