According to a statement from his media office, Nigerians should reject rumors that Soyinka criticized political parties and leaders.
“Soyinka did NOT make such a comment at any time or on any occasion.
The statement continues, “It is merely the product of peddlers of fake news and falsity who profit from misinformation to obtain political advantages.”
