Nobel Laureate Professor Wole Soyinka has fired back at those accusing him of “installing” Muhammadu Buhari, as Nigeria’s president in 2015.
Accordig to the literary doyen, those saying he made Buhari president are talking rubbish, adding that their parents should apologize for inflicting morons on the world.
He spoke on Channels Television’s Newsnight, a pre-recorded interview aired on Monday.
He said, “When people talk about Wole Soyinka installing Buhari, they are talking rubbish; they don’t know what they are talking about. They are talking from ignorance. When I think of the governed themselves, I ask myself, ‘What am I doing among these people who don’t understand that if somebody misrules, you have a right to tell people not to vote for him?’ And it is their business after that who they vote for, but they have the option of spoiling their votes.
“So, when I hear Wole Soyinka was the one who installed Buhari and he should apologize to the nation, I say, ‘Your parents should apologize to the world for inflicting morons like you on the world.’”
