Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has denied any intention to sabotage Nigeria’s 2023 election.

Some publications claim that he wrote to the UK to back down the polls and allow Nigerians to decide the outcome.

Obasanjo reportedly warned UK authorities against interference, adding that it won’t be business as usual.

The former head of state allegedly recalled that in 2002 the British government wanted to remove him.

He allegedly said that the European nation wanted to install a Fulani man whom they could control, but he dominated them.

Obasanjo reportedly told the UK that the problems Nigeria is facing are a result of the Fulani man they summoned.

A statement late Thursday from his media aide, Kedinde Akinyemi, denied the alleged letter.

“The trending story about the former president’s alleged plan to collude with the electoral body in the presidential elections on February 25 is completely false,” he said.

The spokesperson added that apart from the January 1 letter to the youth, and the other to Prof. Toyin Falola on his 70th birthday, “there has been no other public or private letter written to anyone.”

“The reading public is reminded for the umpteenth time that only a statement duly signed by Chief Olusegun Obasanjo or his media aide Kehinde Akinyemi will be allowed in the media space.

“If necessary, necessary checks can be made to confirm the authenticity of such documents before publication to avoid any embarrassment,” the statement added.
