Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka has said that he didn’t tell Nigerians to support Muhammadu Buhari in 2015. Wole Soyinka

Speaking at a media briefing, Soyinka said he never supported the candidacy of Buhari in 2015 but only asked Nigerians not to vote for former President Goodluck Jonathan. He said; Jonathan had a chance to win that election and I told him this. He blew it. He really blew it on many levels. “Before the election, I told him frankly. I told him why I was not going to vote for him or support him because he lost the confidence and trust of the people a couple of actions and inactions, including his failure to tackle corruption. Despite that, it is false to say that I supported the election of Buhari.

If I believed that is what I should do, I would not hesitate one moment to come out and say this is the candidate. I challenge anyone to say where did I say vote for Buhari when, what occasion and in what language? “What I said very distinctly is ‘do not vote for Jonathan’. I don’t regret that because the level of corruption at that stage was such at number one.

It is a shame that one has to recall negativities. At no time did I ever say ‘vote for Buhari’. You can’t find it anywhere. I did not vote for Buhari. If you do not believe me, go and ask the security man in Abeokuta who used to accompany me if I left my house that day.”Hate Speech Bill: "Your Motives Are Dubious", Wole Soyinka Slams FG
