Soyinka Warns Nigerians Against Obasanjo‘s Double Standard, Accuses Him Of Supporting ‘A Devil’ As Nigeria’s President

Soyinka has attacked former President Olusegun Obasanjo again, saying he is supporting a man he called ‘a devil’ several years ago to become Nigeria’s president.

The Nobel Laureate who was a panelist at the event tagged, ‘Nigeria 2019: Countering Fake News,’ organised by BBC News, charged Nigerians to be wary of Obasanjo who pretended to be the conscience of the nation.

Though Soyinka did not mention names, but his utterances ostensibly refers to Obasanjo and his former Vice President and Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar.

Punch quoted Soyinka as saying that if the former leader had been referring to a certain person (Atiku) for eight years as a devil and is now telling Nigerians to vote for the devil, then there was a reason for Nigerians to express some doubt.

According to Soyinka,

“We have got to develop a very healthy scepticism. If someone in a position of power for eight years has lectured a nation for eight years and after that continued year after year to continue to direct the minds of a whole nation in one direction, only saying ‘this is Lucifer from hell’ for eight years in office and several more years out of office, saying this is Lucifer and then one day he changed his left hand and says behold your redeemer, which of the two is fake news?”.

    Obasanjo believes he is all in all in Nigerian matters. Unfortunately for him, he is the cause of all the confusion the present democrazy is going through. A confusionist that cannot manage his home that wantsmto keep dictatting what o do to Nigerians. Didnt he tear his PDP ticket in 2015, saying he was no longer interested in partisan politics? We can see how far he has stayed away

    Both Atiku and Buhari does not have anything to offer Nigerians. People say Buhari will not steal but he is surrounded by thieves and he keeps quiet to their stealing. He does nothing than to blame PDP for his poor performance. Atiku was the VP for 8 years,there was money and the economy was better than the Mr INNOCENT. Who are the people in APC today,the same thieves of PDP. They are all animals in human skin. I will say all this old people to go home and farm.
