BREAKING: Obasanjo Appears In Abeokuta, Ready To Vote Out Buhari, Denies Exiting Nigeria

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Friday, has said that he has not fled Nigeria, contrary to a social media report.

Obasanjo spoke with Newsmen, at his Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Ogun State, describing the social media post as “fake news”.

The former President was reacting to a Facebook post of one Gbenga Lawal, who posted: “Breaking: Obasanjo jets out of Nigeria. He cannot 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 elections?

“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 do not 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.”
