Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Friday said 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 spoke with newsmen at his Presidential Library, Abeokuta , 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 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 . ”
