Datti:"I have never heard where Nobel laureates are being insulted the way Soyinka is being insulted"

Datti Yusuf Former Labour Party vice presidential candidate Baba-Ahmed said that Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka had once called the late General Sani Abacha “unintelligent.” Baba-Ahmed maintained that Soyinka’s disparaging comments about Abacha were unwarranted because the soldier was competent even if he lacked formal education.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>

Soyinka contended that Peter Obi was unreasonable to hold accountable for containing the Obidients’ taunts directed at him since he was too busy facing his own difficulties. He made it clear that Soyinka, not Peter Obi, had the responsibility to preserve honor and dignity.

He said in an interview with Arise TV, ”For all I know, he (Soyinka) could continue to throw punches at my principal, at me as small as I am. He could continue to do that but all I can do is I will grieve in my heart and I will pray for him. Intellect does not give you the right to insult anybody. I remember this same Soyinka insulted the late Gen. Abacha that he was daft. Nothing gives him the right to do that. Abacus was not an academician, he was a soldier for God’s sake. And a good one for that matter in his own way.”

Responding to Wole Soyinka’s claim that Peter Obi encouraged the insults directed towards him by the Obidients, he said, ”Let me tell you, Nobel laureates all over the world are loved and cherished by their people. Not just for their nationals but globally. I have never heard where Nobel laureates are being insulted in the manner that Wole Soyinka is being insulted. There is no way Peter Obi with all the issues in front of him can control Obidients as they were. Peter Obi entered a cause without a life jacket and he paid for it. So it is not the work of Peter Obi to control the Obidients, it’s the responsibility of Wole Soyinka to maintain his respect and dignity.”CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
