wole soyinka

The last has certainly not been heard in the dust raised by an alleged comment by Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka where he was accused of blasting the Igbos over how they voted during the general elections.

Prof Soyinka was quoted as saying that the Igbos voted in line with their stomach and suffer from incurable money mindedness.

In a statement, Prof. Soyinka said only the mentally retarded will credit such statements to him.

“I have just read a statement attributed to me on something called The Cable, a news outlet, evidently one of the Internet infestations. My lecture at the Hutchins Centre, Harvard University, was video recorded. Anyone who believes what I am alleged to have said must be a moron – repeat, a moron. It is demeaning, sickening and boring to have to deal with these cowards who cannot fight their own battles but must fasten their imbecilic pronouncements on others. Only the mentally retarded will credit this comment attributed to me regarding the Ndigbo voting pattern in the last elections. I strongly suspect the author of this despicable concoction, and may make a further statement, once the source is verified.” he said.
