Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has debunked the rumour that he resigned from office. According to Osinbajo, the report is nothing but fake.
He warned the public against believing fake news.
The vice president said he is committed to the service of the Nigerian people under the leadership of his principal, President Muhammadu Buhari.
He lamented the rise of fake news in the country, especially as Nigerians prepare for another election.
The vice president made the statement while reacting to claims by the Peoples Democratic Party chieftain, Doyin Okupe, and others that he threatened to resign after he was excluded from a meeting.
However, Professor Osinbajo, who spoke at a meeting with young Christian leaders in Lagos on Wednesday night said, he missed the security briefing meeting because he was busy in his office.
He said: "They are deliberate propaganda. Today (Wednesday), they’ve been spreading some information around that I’ve resigned. They said I didn’t attend a security meeting yesterday. I was too busy in my office.
"The same security people were meeting with me that same evening. Must I attend every meeting? Can’t the President hold a meeting with the security chiefs without me? They said I was so angry that they didn’t bring me to that meeting, that I was excluded, then I resigned! I have not resigned."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Osinbajo described as absurd, the lies, propaganda and accusations against President Buhari.
Osinbajo said this on Wednesday night, February 20, while responding to questions at an interactive session and engagement held at Muson Centre, Lagos.
