According to a WhatsApp post, Soyinka acknowledged supporting Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressive Congress (APC), and Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Such phony viral posts, according to Soyinka, are the result of sick minds looking for attention for their cowardice.
He believes that people ought to have the audacity to sign their identities as the author of whatever comments they make rather than assuming their identity to give credibility to the fabrications of their dishonest imaginations.
“Once more, I want to make it clear to everyone that I did not create the trending post on social media. Nigerians should kindly ignore the post attributed to me as I never made such comments.”
