Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Chief Olusegun Obasanjo explained why he would not comment on the outcome of the February 23 presidential election, adding that speaking about the election would be ”subjudice.”

Obasanjo said this on Tuesday, March 19, at the Shehu Musa Yar’adua Centre Abuja, at the launch of a book written by Abdullahi Shehu, titled ”Election in Nigeria: The Long Road To Democracy.”

Speaking further about why he has not spoken about the outcome of the election, Obasanjo said: "I will not dabble into the details of what I call current aspect of Prof Shehu’s book because since the emphasis was on the national election, particularly the presidential election, and the presidential election is now taken to court.”
