I did not pay tribute to Tinubu – Soyinka

From Femi Folaranmi, Yenagoa
Nobel laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka has debunked claims that he paid tribute to the Presidential standard bearer of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Mr Ahmed Bola Tinubu.
The elder statesman had earlier in the year also dismissed a social media post endorsing Tinubu for the 2023 Presidency.
A tribute titled, ‘Prof Wole Soyinka’s tribute to Sen Asiwaju Tinubu’ purportedly written by Soyinka eulogising Tinubu on his political accomplishments had gone viral on various WhatsApp platforms shortly after he emerged the Presidential candidate of APC.
Soyinka in a statement by his spokesman, Abiola Owoaje dismissed the trending post as the handiwork of indolent identity thieves whose preoccupation is to deceive the general public with phoney social media posts to gain prominence.
He  maintained he does  not operate or own  social media accounts.
The literary luminary reiterated his position on the 2023 elections and the issues surrounding it, noting that he has no business meddling in the struggle for power by political parties in the country.
Soyinka enjoins the general public to be on alert to the antics of faceless cowards spreading falsehood, adding that they should not partake in the despicable action of the authors by spreading the cocktail of lies.
