News Africa: Obasanjo debunks rumours of him jetting out the country before presidential election

Obasanjo debunks rumours of him jetting out the country before presidential election
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has responded to the claims in some reports making rounds on the internet about him travelling out of the country ahead of the presidential election.
Obasanjo, while briefing reporters on Friday in Abeokuta, said he has not fled the country and would stay in Nigeria and vote according to his conscience.
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.”
