'Buhari is hale and hearty' - Osinbajo says, denies he is under any pressure to resign



Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, said President
Buhari is hale and hearty, adding that the
president’s health status is an issue only him
would discuss at the appropriate time.
Speaking to State House reporters after a close
door meeting with the National Chairman of the
All Progressive Congress (APC) on Monday, the
Acting President said the he had a telephone
conversation with Buhari earlier.
"The President is hale and hearty. I spoke to
the President just this afternoon and we had a
warm conversation. He was interested in
knowing about the budget process and how far
we have gone and the meeting today with the
private sector and the economic recovery
growth plan and I informed him about the
protest march and feedback about what people
are saying about the economy. He is in good
shape" he said.
"Just like he said in his letter to the National
Assembly he needs to go for a cycle of test and
once he sees the test results and gets medical
advice, we expect him very soon.
"I think that the health status of Mr President is
an issue that only Mr President would discuss
at the appropriate time . Again he is running
test and all of that. Before you will be able to
determine your health status you must be able
to say this is my health status. I have to do the
test my doctors have advised me to do and will
wait for the outcome of the test and know my
status."
On whether he was under pressure to resign
from office, he said: "I am not under any
pressure to resign. I was voted for by the
people of this nation, myself and Mr President
and so the people of this nation have not asked
us to resign .
"I am absolutely not under any pressure
whatsoever. The truth is that their have been no
pressure from any source asking me to resign,"
he added.
