A statement issued by the S A on Political Affairs, Mr Femi Ojudu, who cleared the air by saying nothing of such ever happened in the villa, He told the public via media that no Governor from the North held the acting President Hostage or forced the Acting President to resign from office.
In his statement titled: “The State of the Nation,” The SA said the acting president Yemi Osinbajo was busy working on his desk in his office and discharging his routine functions having presided over a meeting of the Federal Executive Council.
The rumour has been described by his aides as absurd and unfounded urging the media to desist from spreading fake information.
In his words: “I have read many absurd stories saying the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, is being held hostage by Northern governors who are trying to force him to resign his office.
“I have as well received quite a lot of calls concerning this issue. This is not true and cannot be. It is a cock-and-bull story. Don’t be a spreader of fake news that could break the country apart.
