Nigeria’s acting president Yemi Osinbajo Monday said he was no under pressure to resign from his post, addressing rumours for the first time that he was pressured by a special interest to vacate his position.

Osinbajo spoke to reporters at the State House, Abuja, after a meeting with the national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Chief John odigie-Oyegun.

“I’m absolutely under no pressure to resign. In any event, I was voted for by the people of this nation – myself and Mr President, and the people of this nation have not asked us to resign,” Osinbajo said.

“So I have absolutely no pressure whatsoever and the truth is that there have been absolutely no pressure whatsoever from any source asking me to resign.”

Reiterating the presidency’s position that the Buhari had no serious health issues, the acting vice president said he had a long phone conversation with ‘hale and hearty’ Buhari earlier on Monday on the state of the nation.

“Let me say that the President is hale and hearty. I spoke to him just this afternoon and we had a very long conversation.

“He was interested in knowing about the budget process and how far we had gone. As you know, we had a meeting today with the private sector on the economic recovery plan.

“Of course I informed him about some of what we are seeing – the protests, marches and all of that, some of the feedback and what people are saying about the economy.

“He is in good shape, he was very chatty and we had a good conversation this afternoon.”

He, however, like Buhari’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, declined to disclose the exact state of the president’s health, noting that only the president had the right to disclose such information to the public.

“I think that the health status of Mr President is a fact or issue that only Mr President himself will be able to discuss at the appropriate time.

“Again, he is running tests and before you determine your health status you must be able to say ‘this is my health status’.

“If I’m running tests; doing some routine and some that my doctors have asked me to do, then surely I must await the outcome of that before I talk about any kind of status,” he said.
