“VP Osinabjo 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,” Akande wrote on his Twitter account on Saturday.

This would be the first time since becoming the nation’s vice president, that Osinbajo will be hospitalised as he sustained the tempo of his support for his principal, President Mohammadu Buhari.

He participated at the May presidential primary of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) which was won by ex-Lagos Governor Bola Tinubu and came third behind the minister of Transporation, Rotimi Amaechi.
