Prof. Wole Soyinka Denies Endorsing Any Candidate
Professor Wole Soyinka has warned those spreading rumours about him endorsing President Goodluck Jonathan and some governorship candidate should deceit from spreading the lies because he never for once endorsed any candidate. Soyinka stated this in a piece titled ‘Identity Thieves and the 2015 Election Peace Accord.’ His words;
“Let me thus seize the occasion of the Abuja accord to state categorically that I have never made a statement endorsing any presidential or governorship contestant. All such attributions are fabrications by faceless, often self-appointed agents of deception, and should be publicly pilloried.
“Whenever I choose to declare support for a candidate – as is my electoral right – I shall ensure that I deploy amedium that places my authorship beyond dispute,” he said.
