Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Office of Vice President Laolu Akande announced this in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle.
According to the tweet, the surgery had been necessitated by recurring pain in his leg suspected to have been a result of an injury sustained while playing squash.
“VP Osinbajo is in the hospital today for a surgical procedure on account of a recurrent pain in the leg possibly sustained from an injury while playing squash. His doctors would give an update of the treatment later today,” the tweet informed.
Last Thursday, Osinbajo participated in a meeting with G-7 diplomats from the countries, Egypt and some global agencies on the global Net-zero emissions target by 2050-2060.
