… Insists he is in Nigeriau
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo
has denied a media report that he has fled the country ahead of the presidential and National Assembly elections tomorrow.
Obasanjo who spoke with newsmen at his Presidential Library , Abeokuta on Friday (today) described the facebook post as “fake news.”
A Facebook post by one Gbenga Lawal
titled: “ Breaking: Obasanjo jets
out of Nigeria. He can ’t even wait for the thief he is imposing on Nigerians”
In his reaction, Obasanjo said“ 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.”
Obasanjo had endorsed the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar for the tomorrow election and asked Nigerians to vote for him massively.
