Soyinka Takes Obasanjo To The Cleaners Again At Globalcom Hosting

Globalcom last night hosted
Professor Wole Soyinka in a programme tagged: ‘An evening with Wole Soyinka’.
He was later asked to respond to Obasanjo’s assessment of him in the former
president’s book titled ‘My Watch’, where he notes that Soyinka is good at
hunting and wines but a political illiterate. Soyinka however fired again saying
Obasanjo is nothing but a liar and why should the opinion of a liar matter.
Hear him;
“Obasanjo is entitled to his
opinion. But the question is: ‘Who respects the opinion of a liar? I can spend the whole night
proving that he is a liar. Obasanjo was once described by an economist, the
late Prof Ojetunji Aboyade, as an economic illiterate. They nearly ‘went into
blow’ that night. It was Prof. Mabogunje who separated them. So, if an economic illiterate
calls somebody a political illiterate, no problem at all. In ‘ My Watch’, Obasanjo told
the first lie when he said he deplored lies. Anybody who said he never plotted
to have an unconstitutional third term in office, even as a writer, I need a
word to describe him.”
It will be recalled that the former
president and the professor have been sworn enemies for some time taking swipes
at each other at any given time.
