Presidency has denied rumour making the rounds that Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo was being pressurized to resign his office by Nigerian governors.
Reacting to the rumour, in a statement by the Special Adviser to the president on Political Affairs in the office of the Vice President, Femi Ojudu in Abuja yesterday stated that, there was no iota of truth in the matter, saying it was entirely false.
He said that Osinbajo was busy yesterday attending to visitors after presiding over the Federal Executive Council, FEC. Ojudu stated: “I have read many ridiculous stories saying the Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo is being held hostage by some governors who are trying to compel him to resign.
“I have equally received several calls regarding this. The story is simply not true. It is a fabrication. Don’t be a purveyor of fake news . “The Vice President is behind his desk carrying out his task.
The Federal Executive Council presided over by him has just ended and he has been busy receiving visitors and holding meetings.”
