Why I’m yet to speak on outcome of presidential election – Obasanjo


Former president Olusegun Obasanjo finally dwell on the outcome of the just-concluded presidential election.


Obasanjo acknowledged he refused to make a statement on the presidential election because the matter was already before court.


Obasanjo proclaimed on Tuesday in Abuja at the public presentation of a book entitled, ‘Election in Nigeria: The Long Road To Democracy’, written by Professor Abdullahi Shehu.

He said : “I will not dabble into the details of what I call current aspect of Professor Shehu’s book because since the emphasis was on the national elections, particularly the presidential election, and the presidential election is now taken to court.

“I think talking about it would become sub judice because it has been taken to court,”

Former Head of State Yakubu Gowon and human rights activist Femi Falana were among the dignitaries present at the event.
