The Trent published an article, Osinbajo Insulted By El Rufai, Walks Out On President Buhari (September 16, 2015).

The same article was published on the official government website for the Nigerian Presidency (, HERE. The publication was titled, President Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, and El Rufai Share Mutual Respect (September 17, 2015) and signed by Mr. Laolu Akande.
