Obasanjo Denies Writing Letter To UK On 2023 Election

In a viral letter, Obasanjo was said to have asked Britain to “back down on the 2023 election and allow Nigerians to decide their candidate for once.” The letter claimed Britain attempted to rig the 2003 elections.

The letter also stated that Obasanjo reportedly said he would “rather release the information I have with me which will end Nigeria and put Britain in a bad light forever than for Obi to lose.”

Reacting in a statement on Thursday, Obasanjo’s spokesperson, Kehinde Akinyemi said the former president had no links with the viral letter.

He added that the alleged plan by Obasanjo to collude with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the presidential election of February 25 is false.
