There are news reports from certain quarters asserting that the acting president was under pressure to resign his role as the vice president.
According to the reports, some northern governors are asking the vice president to vacate his office.
This is coming as controversy trails the President’s health condition, who is currently in London vacationing.
The Presidency vehemently rejected the speculation making the rounds.
The insinuation has been rife following the rumored death of President Muhammadu Buhari in a London hospital.
Reacting to the reports, the Special Adviser to the president on Political Affairs in the office of the Vice President, Femi Ojudu debunked the claim.
Ojudu said vice president Yemi was still up and about his role as his office demands.
He described the rumored resignation reports as false.
“I have read many ridiculous stories saying the Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo is being held hostage by some governors.
“They said the governors 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.
“As we speak, the vice President has been busy receiving visitors and holding meetings,” Ojudu said.
