Prof. osinbajo said he is not in the position to disclose the true health status of President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigerians, but, “The President is hale and hearty.”

Osinbajo spoke to newsmen shortly after meeting behind closed doors with the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.

The Acting President also debunked the insinuation that he was under intense pressure to resign as reported in a section of the media last weekend.
