The VP who spoke through his spokesperson, Laolu Akande, blamed his detractors for the propaganda.
“Contrary to the fake news in circulation yesterday, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has not resigned his position in the Buhari administration,” the statement read.
The statement explained said that the VP was in a meeting with young Christian leaders in Lagos on Wednesday night when the rumour of his purported resignation was trending.
“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.”
The statement said that in continuation of the Next Level engagements, the Vice President visited Ikeja, Lagos State, where he met with the Hausa community.
“He then proceeded to Yola, in Adamawa State, where he met a group of Christian leaders
“On his return to Lagos yesterday night, the Vice President held an interactive session with young Christian leaders at Muson Center, Onikan, where he spoke on the fake news.”
The statement said those wishing Osinbajo to resign “are only day-dreaming “.
