A letter circulating that claims President Yemi Osinbajo requested permission from President Muhammadu Buhari to depart the ruling All Progressives Congress has been refuted by the vice president (APC).

News Report that the memo, titled “Permission to resign from APC,” dated June 24, 2022, referenced SH/VP/605/2./0, and identified family pressure as one of the factors leading to the purported decision.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Office of the Vice President, Mr. Laolu Akande, characterized the supposed document as fraudulent when asked to authenticate its veracity.

He asserted that the document’s author did not speak in Osinbajo’s dialect and that his boss would not have written a message with as many faults as the one in question.

“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.

The ‘fake memorandum’ purportedly written and signed by Osinbajo reads: “I have the honour to inform you that for sometime 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 for your permission to resign my membership of the All Progressives Congress, APC. However, if the timing of this plan is not convenience 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.”
