Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, has disowned another political quote attributed to him. The professor of Comparative Literature said he “did not at any time or on any occasion issue such a statement'”. He said this in a statement he sent to PREMIUM TIMES on Sunday.
He said that these quotes are “simply the works of peddlers of fake news and falsehood, who profit from misinformation to gain political advantages.”
Prof. Soyinka advised the media and members to ignore the message.
These are some of the quotes attributed to the Nobel laureate winner.
“Quote me anywhere, Nigerians don’t need the likes of Atiku and Obasanjo to lead them again. We have tasted the two: Atiku Is Corrupt and Obasanjo is a liar. Both of them are greedy and self-centred.
“Anybody, any cabal, any Viju milk activist, attempting to humiliate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu must have me to contend with.
“ An average PDP man is angry with Asiwaju because he brought them to their knees. If anyone thinks that bringing down Asiwaju is his project, that mission will not only crash but it will boomerang. He owns Lagos! I hear you! Ask your grandfather and parents how they acquired your so-called family land. Is it God that allocated it to them?”
