Obasanjo reveals why he’s yet to speak on outcome of presidential election

Ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo has revealed why he has spoken concerning the just concluded 2019 presidential election which was won by President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Buhari got re-elected by defeating his closest challenger, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Speaking during the public presentation of a book entitled, ‘Election in Nigeria: The Long Road To Democracy’, written by Abdullahi Shehu, Obasanjo said:

“It would amount to sub judice if I speak on Presidential election result since the matter is already before the court”

“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,” Obasanjo added.
