Nobel laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka has debunked feedback attributed to him on the latest defections from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Soyinka in a terse assertion signed by his spokesman, Abiola Owoaje, urged Nigerians to ignore such statements and deal with them as one other case of id theft.
He harassed that he has made no touch upon any political celebration for years.
The assertion reads partly: “Here we go once more! Treat as one more case of id theft. I’ve made no assertion in anyway on celebration defections or certainly on any political celebration’s fortunes or misfortunes previously three to 4 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.”
