The Special Adviser to the president on Political Affairs in the office of the Vice President, Femi Ojudu, on Wednesday, said there was no truth in report that governors are mounting pressure on Prof. Yemi Osinbajo to resign over the rumoured failing health of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Denying the report in a tacit statement titled “State of the Nation,” Ojudu said,
“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.”
