Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has distanced himself from ever endorsing President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015, putting a lie to claims of double-speak.
Speaking during a press conference in Lagos, Soyinka said he didn’t even vote on election day in 2015.
“It is false to say that I supported the election of Buhari,” adding that what he said at the time was “do not vote for Jonathan”.
He stressed that it is his fundamental right to vote for any candidate of his choice, and if the person fails, he is entitled to so declare.
“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 a medium that places my authorship beyond dispute.
“Internet habitues, Social networks etc are urged to be less gullible, and avoid becoming cheap conduits for the deception industry,” he quipped.
