Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has dispelled rumours of his intention to resign as been speculated in some quarters.

Unconfirmed reports on social media had claimed Mr Osinbajo threatened to step aside over his exclusion from the security meeting held on Wednesday.

President Muhammadu Buhari, some State governors particularly from the Northern region, alongside security chiefs gathered at the presidential villa to discuss some security challenges in the region.

PoliticsNGR observed that the vice president was absent from the meeting. This led to rumours flying around that he was not being carried along on the affairs of the country.

A social media influencer who helped in disseminating the speculation said he got the hint from a close aide of the number two citizen.

But reacting on Thursday morning, Osinbajo described the rumor as fake news.

“Misleading/FAKE news is on the rise especially in this season when Nigerians will make a choice about who will govern them for the next four years,” he tweeted, adding that, “I have not resigned.”

Osinbajo said he remained “committed to the service of the Nigerian people under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.”
