Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the Vice President, Laolu Akande in a statement said there is no plan by the Vice President to visit Delta State.

“A visit to Delta State is not on the Vice-President’s schedule for Tuesday, January 10. The claim in today’s (Monday’s) news report that the VP is expected in the state on Tuesday is therefore untrue,” he said.

Spokesman for the Gbaramatu Traditional Council, Chief Godspower Gbenekama had earlier confirmed the visit. Punch Newspaper is however reports that the visit was postponed due to the recent threats by militants, especially the Niger Delta Avengers and the Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate.
