Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says he has nothing to do with a memorandum that claim he is allegedly seeking the approval of President Muhammadu Buhari’s to decamp from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity in the Office of the Vice President, Mr. Laolu Akande, said the memo was is fake as it does not in anyway depict language and intellectual prowess of his boss as the acclaimed memo is said to be full of error.
In the memorandum, dated June 24, 2022 and titled: Permission to Resign from APC, Osibanjo was alleged to have his reason for the decision to include family pressure among other things.
According to Laolu, the language of the author of the memo is not that of Vice President Osinbajo, explaining that his boss would not write a memo so full of errors.
“Where do you people even get these things from? Who gave it to you? Anyways, for the avoidance of doubt, the memo is fake. VP didn’t write any such thing,” he said.
Part of the fake memo reads: “I have the honour to inform you that for some time now, I have been having series of meetings and pressure from my immediate family members on some matters. One of the issues borders on my continuous participation on active and partisan politics, and by extension, my continuous membership of our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“As a father and great member, whom without you, I would not be where I am today, regrettably, I write to seek your permission to resign my membership of the APC. However, if the timing of this plan is not convenient or acceptable by Your Excellency, I will surely abide by your decision and advice, which I will consider to be the final. “Please, accept the assurances of my highest regards and loyalty.”
