I Haven’t Fled Nigeria —Obasanjo Speaks On Nigeria’s Presidential Election

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo says he has not fled Nigeria, contrary to a social media report that he had travelled out of the county ahead of the presidential election scheduled for Saturday.

Obasanjo, who spoke with newsmen on Friday at his Presidential Library, Abeokuta, described the Social media post as “fake news.”

A Facebook post of one Gbenga Lawal had alleged  that Obasanjo had jetted out of Nigeria and couldn’t even “wait for the thief he is imposing on Nigerians.”

Obasanjo noted, “Why should I travel out of the country before the election?

“If not for anything, I believe I should be here to perform my civic responsibility, which is to vote according to the dictate of my heart tomorrow and on the second of March.

“Those who are carrying that type of rumour or fake news; I leave them in the hands of God; I am used to that kind of thing.

“In Yoruba land, if your head is hard, you don’t have to worry yourself.

“Let anybody tell lies against you, let anybody issue fake news against you, let anybody abuse you, God will deal with them rightly and appropriately.”
