We want to use this medium to apologize to former President, Dr Olusegun Obasanjo GCFR over our news story with above headline which was published in our Monday July 2, 2018 publication and was also published on our website www.nigeriannewsdirect.com on the same day.
Just as we stated in the story, we relied on an Ogun State based tabloid to publish the story. We have since found out that Chief Obasanjo did not speak with any journalist on the subject matter.
We also apologize to the candidate of African Democratic Congress in 2019 Ogun governorship election, Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka for the embarrassment our story might have caused him. It was not deliberate as we hold him in high esteem.
We call on the general public to totally disregard the story in its entirety.
We, therefore retract the news.
