I’ve not resigned as VP – Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has denied reports that he has resigned.

There were reports on social media that Osinbajo resigned on Wednesday in protest of alleged repeated sidelining from major activities in the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The reports added that it took the intervention of the former governor of Lagos state and national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, for the Vice President to rescind his decision.

Osinbajo debunked the claims while addressing a forum on Thursday morning, saying: “There are deliberate propaganda. Today, they’ve been spreading some information around that I’ve resigned. They said I’ve resigned; they said I didn’t attend the security meeting yesterday.

“I was in my office… What time do I have? Must I attend every meeting? Can’t the President hold a meeting with security chiefs without me? They said I was so angry that they didn’t bring me to that security meeting — I was excluded — so I resigned.”
