‘No del­e­gate died again’

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Fran­cis Okeke

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.
