Renowned Nigerian writer, Wole Soyinka has disclosed what he told Peter Obi before the 2023 presidential election.
Soyinka explained that he was quite disappointed that his interview with Channels Television was taken out of contest and misinterpreted by different media houses.
He disclosed that before the election he reached out to Peter Obi three times and told him what could make him lose the elections.
He said that he told the LP flag bearer that if he lost the election it would be the fault of the Obidients.
In his words: “My rejection of fascism is nothing new. On three occasions, I was able to send a message to Peter Obi that, if he lost the election, it would be his followers who lost it for him.
“It was depressing to watch his lieutenant, a crucially positioned voice of a movement that has “broken the mould”, threaten the totality of social existence.
“Whatever our ideological leaning, is Donald Trump the ideal template for a burgeoning democracy in the nation?

“My critique of incipient fascism in the movement remains grounded in indisputable evidence. Throughout the interview, I continued to stress that the final word had yet to be pronounced on the elections – that omission renders the full message tendentious!”
