I Did not Pay Tribute to Tinubu – Soyinka

Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka has debunked claims that he paid tribute to the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ahmed Bola Tinubu.

This was contained in a statement  issued by his spokesman, Abiola Owoaje today.

A tribute titled, ‘Prof Wole Soyinka’s tribute to Sen Asiwaju Tinubu’, purportedly written by Soyinka eulogising Tinubu on his political accomplishments, had gone viral on various WhatsApp platforms shortly after he emerged as the presidential flagbearer of the APC.

The elder statesman had earlier in the year, also dismissed a social media post endorsing Tinubu for the 2023 Presidency.

Soyinka described the trending post as the handiwork of indolent identity thieves whose preoccupation is to deceive the general public with ingenuine social media posts to gain prominence.

He maintained that he did not operate or own social media accounts.

The statement further said, “The literary luminary reiterated his position on the 2023 elections and the issues surrounding it, noting that he has no business meddling in the struggle for power by political parties in the country.

Soyinka enjoins the general public to be on alert to the antics of faceless cowards spreading falsehood, adding that they should not partake in the despicable action of the authors by spreading the cocktail of lies.
