“Anyone Who Believes What I Am Alleged To Have Said Must Be A Moron” – Soyinka
Professor Wole Soyinka has responded to comments attributed to him concerning the voting pattern of the Igbo in the just concluded presidential election.
It was reported that the Nobelist accused the Igbo of voting according to their “stomachs”.
“I have just read a statement attributed to me on something called The CABLE, a news outlet, evidently one of the Internet infestations.” Soyinka said in a statement.
“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.”
