“Treat as yet another case of identity theft” – Soyinka denies making comments on PDP defections
Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka has blamed identity thieves for a comment credited to him on the wave of defections from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said he had not made any comment on any political party for years.
The octogenarian stated this Sunday in a statement signed by his media aide, Abiola Owoaje.
“Here we go again! Treat as yet another case of Identity Theft.
“I have made no statement whatsoever on party defections or indeed on any political party fortunes or misfortunes in the past three to four years.
“Once again, I urge Nigerians to have the courage of their convictions and stop acting like the contemptible cowards and opportunistic hustlers that infest the social media,” Soyinka said.
