Former Nigeria President, Olusegun Obasanjo has on Friday declared that he didn’t jet out of the country contrary to a social media report that he had travelled out of the county ahead of the presidential election scheduled for Saturday.
Obasanjo addressed the issue by speaking to newsmen at his Presidential Library, Abeokuta, where he described the news as “fake news.”
Ex president responded to a Facebook users post, Gbenga Lawal who shared: “Breaking: Obasanjo jets out of Nigeria. He can’t even wait for the thief he is imposing on Nigerians.”
Meanwhile the former president reacted “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 rumor 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.”
