2019: The King Emerges, Shows The World He Is Still The Same Fearless Lion, Obasanjo Speaks, Shows Nigeria He Is Ready
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has denied reports he has fled Nigeria ahead of Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly elections.
He said he remains in Nigeria to perform his civic responsibility of voting according to the dictate of his heart on Saturday and on March 2, governorship and house of assembly elections.
A Facebook user, one Gbenga Lawal had posted, “Breaking: Obasanjo jets out of Nigeria. He can’t even wait for the thief he is imposing on Nigerians.”
But speaking with journalists at his Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Obasanjo described the post as “fake news,” wondering why he should travel out of the country before the elections of February 16 and March 2.
He 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.
“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.”
Obasanjo had in several letters and comments branded President Muhammadu Buhari an incompetent leader deserving no reelection.
He has since endorsed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as his preferred candidate to succeed Buhari.
Atiku served as Vice President to Obasanjo between 1999 and 2007. The two have been political enemies since, but Obasanjo forgave Atiku towards the ending of last year.

We have records to show how Buhari, APC rigged presidential election – Buba Galadima
Buba Galadima, Spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation, has revealed how the incumbent government allegedly rigged last month’s presidential election to retain its grip on power.
Galadima, an estranged ally of incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari, accused the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led federal government of using the military to intimidate voters and inflate election results in its favour.
He spoke on Wednesday while appearing as a guest on Channels TV’s breakfast show, Sunrise Daily.
Galadima said the events in Rivers State were evidence of the intimidation.
“It is not an accusation, the military are good candidates of the International Criminal Court. I saw it on television where they were going to houses killing people,” the Atiku spokesperson said.
He claimed that records are available to show that Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, won the presidential election.
“They said they won and want to go to court to inspect the election materials, that is clearly to show they rigged the election.
“I am speaking with authority and I can defend it in the court of law. Have you ever heard that a respondent went to court to check the results of an election because he was not sure his agents did the right thing?” he said.
