‘No delegate died again’
No delegate has died again at the National Conference as reported on the Internet, the conference secretariat has said.
A statement by Assistant Secretary on Media and Communication, Akpandem James, said although the body of the said story is a fair representation of the incident that happened on the evening of April 15, the headline was misleading.
James explained that the delegate in question slumped on his way out of the conference secretariat after the day’s plenary and was immediately taken to the hospital where he was attended to and subsequently put on bed rest.
He said the delegate’s condition has since stabilised.
