2023: I Didn’t Endorse Any Presidential Aspirant – Prof. Wole Soyinka

Nigerian Nobel Laureate and playwright, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has debunked circulating rumors of him being in support of the All Progressive Congress (APC) leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition. ayokinews.com reports

The circulated report of his support for the APC leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, was contained in a statement released on Wednesday, titled “Season of Fakery Galore.”

Reacting to the report, Soyinka branded the authors of the supposed article as illiterate public interlopers who lacked the courage of their conviction and were forced to steal their superior’s identities.

The post which had Soyinka and Tinubu’s picture embedded, went viral on the internet last year November, and quoted Prof. Soyinka as saying, “I have never involve myself in politics or campaign for any politician but in 2023 I will involve in politics and campaign for longtime friend in 1993 NADECO struggle. Nobel laurel, Professor Wole Soyinka.”

Responding to the report, Soyinka said:

“Here we go again. The same boring, illiterate public interlopers who lack the courage of their conviction and must steal the identities of their betters. One can only hope that the public has learnt to identify Fake News and join in the urgent task of exposing and disgracing these despicable touts.”

“For the avoidance of doubt, I have not even thought of 2023, much less inserted candidates into coveted positions. The signature of this latest moron is familiar – he or she does not even know the difference between ‘Laureate and Laurel.’

“This is an ancient forgery being recycled for the umpteenth time. Those who pass it round do themselves and their recipients a disservice. Find something worthwhile to occupy your time.”

“In any case, we have no business with politics in the land of the dead, and the most recent information I have on me is that I died sometime last year. The email account of the year’s Nobel ‘Laurel”‘ was hacked by these same agents to publicise my demise, so who is this still politicking WS ‘Laurel’?”
