The Office of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has dismissed reports of bigotry against Muslims by releasing a video showing all Muslim appointees working for him.

The Daily Crucible in its reports earlier, noted that Farooq Kperogi, a professor of journalism in the US, had accused Osinbajo of hate for Muslims.

This was following Osinbajo’s declaration of his presidential ambition on Monday morning.

In a move to counter the allegations, Osinbajo’s office released a video on Wednesday showing that he has appointed 16 Muslims.
