I am in the country; I did not travel anywhere – Obasanjo

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has denied a trending story that he has travelled out of the country ahead of the Saturday presidential elections

Obasanjo spoke on Friday from his Presidential Library in Abeokuta, Ogun State,

Obasanjo;s disclaimer follows a tweet by one Gbenga Lawal who sent a post on social media headlined: “Breaking: Obasanjo jets out of Nigeria. He can’t even wait for the thief he is imposing on Nigerians.”

The former president described it as another case of fake news.

“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 2nd 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,” he said.
