Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has said that he is not under pressure to resign, saying “the truth of the matter is that there is no pressure from any source”.
He also said that he cannot disclose the health status of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Osinbajo stated that only President Buhari would declare his health status at the appropriate time.
Osinbajo said this at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja this evening while addressing State House reporters after meeting behind closed-doors with the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, John Odigie-Oyegun.
Osinbajo was fielding a question on why it has been difficult for Nigerians to know the president’s health status.
President Buhari has remained in London after his ten-day vacation based on the advice by his medical doctors to complete and receive a series of medical tests.
The acting president said Buhari was hale and hearty, stressing that he just had a long conversation with him few minutes ago.
He said he discussed with Buhari, the 2017 budget and the ongoing protests in the country.
