Yoruba nation: Soyinka debunks fake WhatsApp message
Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka has urged Nigerians to disregard a WhatsApp message in which he purportedly aired his views on the agitation for Yoruba nation.
He made this known in a statement titled, ‘They are back’.
The octogenarian said he is not present on any social media platform and would rather express himself about any issue through print media.
“Professor Wole Soyinka wishes to denounce the fake WhatsApp posting on the Yoruba state agitation being attributed to him.
“Once again, he requests the public to ignore the utterances of those contemptible interlopers, who lack the courage of their conviction and thus take to identity theft for the furtherance of their views. For a start, Wole Soyinka does not participate in Facebook, tweet, blog, WhatsApp or other offerings of the social media.
“Any views that he wishes to express on national and other issues routinely go through the print media,” the statement read.
