Vice President, Samuel Sam Sumana has denied claims by some newspapers that he was snubbed and shunned on arrival at the Yengema airfield during a visit to Kono.
"The stories were erroneously reported with misleading headlines. It is unfortunate that no journalist ever contacted the press unit of the Vice President to know if he actually made the trip," Andrew Collier, a press officer attached to the Vice President’s office said.
He says the Vice President did not depart Freetown for Kono on the day the newspapers claim he did.
"The Press Unit in the Office of the Vice President views with grave concern publications in the Wednesday 15th October editions of some newspapers about the visit of the Vice President to Kono," a press release issued Wednesday states, while emphasizing that the Office of the Vice President remains open to journalists who desire to crosscheck any information relating to the activities of the Vice President.
