A former President of Nigeria Chief Olusegun Obasanjo said on Friday that he has not run out of the country, contrary to report.

A social media report alleged that Obasanjo fled Nigeria few hours before the Presidential election scheduled to hold for Saturday.

One Gbenga Lawal posted on Facebook “Breaking: Obasanjo jets out of Nigeria. He can’t even wait for the thief he is imposing on Nigerians.”

The former President rebutted what he descried as “fake news” at his Presidential Library, Abeokuta.

Reacting, Obsanjo 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.”
