Is there any empirical evidence that this text above is the only thing he said?
this is just a discussion between friends & not a speech.

Someone is just trying to calm nerves here by posting this online... This is my observation.

Awolowo is already in his own grave Tay Tay surrounded by most of his kids
Your lord tinubu won't even aknowledge his widow who only gets recognition from the outcasts in Yoruba land
Talk about curses that last


How does that change the fact that the biatch of your tribal war Lord warms the bed of every fani,kayode and Peter obi.. bla bla about tinubu, no one in the history of the erosion zone can equal him. when are we doing the owanbe of apuga?? I will sponsor all the drinks for the day.

There's nothing "unoriginal" about the dumb, pathetic, insulting and tribalistic BS he said about the Igbos. He said those words, Havard website just decided to post the parts of his speech they deemed important for them. This ain't the "full text" of his speech.

His insults on my tribe was totally unnecessary and bigotic. And it hurt me and my fellow Igbos that campaigned endlessly for Buhari to win. I guess the tribalistic nature of him has finally been laid bare. If i knew supporting APC as an Igbo was because of money and my stomach, which wasn't true, i wouldn't have wasted my time supporting a cause where they see my tribe as an outcast.


This country is a sick joke. 4 times Buhari contested, 4 times majority of the North voted him. The sick and depraved mind of Soyinka never insulted the Hausa-Fulanis. When the Igbos voted Obasanjo twice, were we voting for our stomach too? The SS and SE voted for Jonathan, while the majority of the entire North and SW voted for Buhari. Yet he chose only the SE to pour his senility on. Maybe he wanted a case where everyone will vote APC, which leads me to ask; "what's the need of an opposition if everyone votes for one party?" I revere this man so much so i won't be insulting the entire Yorubas because of one man's hatred. When Oba Akiolu wished my tribe death, i never insulted the Yorubas, so Soyinka won't make me do such. I've met and befriended many Yorubas and they all accommodated me, loved me and never hated me. So i won't judge all of them with one man's senility. But as i type this, i regret championing the cause of APC, it's clear everything in this country is down to tribal bigotry. What a cursed country.

You're right in many ways. Shame on him. We know that at the heart of every Nigerian is hard-wired racism but there are certain levels you get that interests and other realities should override these. Sadly not in his case. Shows how far we are from salvation in this country. Glad he said not in his lifetime because his generation sowed and nutured the seeds of this mess. Pity.

From now on, any speech made by a yoruba, I want a video of it before I believe any denial about that speech. We know them.

babyosisi:


you actually think an hour long lecture or more could be contained in a school gazette that has other information in it?
Tsk tsk tsk
Never heard of editing
Do you think harvard gazette is like Osun defender or ikebe super ?
It is just a small publication of few pages that highlights notable happenings within the university
If you can't come up with evidence that he actually said what you're accusing him of, then shut your mouth. When have schools been the only body that cover public lectures held on their campuses? I attend public lectures in Nigerian universities. I see different media houses covering them. In late January, I went to Ile-Ife, where Tunde Bakare delivered a lecture, "Beyond 2015" at OAU. It was organized by residents of the Angola Hall. While in the Oduduwa Hall, where it held, I saw Punch, OSBC, the Guardian, NTA, etc. In most cases, lectures like this and even the ones organized by departments, are not gazetted because the management of the school is not directly involved in organizing them. If the management gazettes lies or fails to gazette everything, the media houses present will publish or broadcast, as the case may be, the lecture. Stop giving yourself headache.

Not to discount what has been said but there are so many news articles that never make it to the news print.

This piece of news does not simply wash away the previous one because it 'excludes' his tribalistic statement.

It may have been a ruthless ploy to smear mud on his character or it may have been the professor expressing his freedom of opinion.

Lately, some have been seen, heard to make offensive tribalistic statements in the media that leaves undeniable proofs but went on to deny their statements when they perceived the heat their careless and thoughtless words were generating. The professor may have joined the trend or he may be a victim of a devilish prank.

You add nothing.

Seun and or his moderators will probably hand me a lengthy ban for this but if they are serious and sincere they will know the lack of verification of what they push onto the front page is causing a big damage to the oneness of this nation.

It is appalling really. Why not verify stuffs before pushing it to the front page or is the zeal for massive traffic that high?

This forum is a great place to be when you remove Seun's dictatorial tendencies and the aforementioned haste at which posts that shouldn't be given promotion are often given promotion.

Expecting my ban now.

Nigerians reaction to news is quite surprising .... Illiteracy and poverty everywhere ..... Soyinka wouldn't say what "TheCable" quoted ..... as usual Nairalanders has started the bashing already ........ Nowadays , I check the source of news and the credibility of that source before I post comment.


Somebody called my attention yesterday that Buhari has dropped Fashola and Fayemi from Ministerial list , he said he read it on Nairaland , he was very vigorous about the news he started telling everybody in the office ..... I asked him to calm down and check the source quoted by the Op on Nairaland ....... it was a blog.

I love you bruh, i would have french kissed you now if you where a gurl, i said it even in my post yesterday that i didnt believe that nonsense. The Noble Laureate is way too classy and dignified to engage in Ethnic profiling. iTs the classless, gutter mods on this garbage website who feed off the tribal hate between Igbo and Yorubas who would hurriedly post that nonsense here. This website should be sued for not properly investigating whatever they post on here. they think a disclaimer helps them? Most of the mods are a bunch of f00ls and uneducated m0r0ns!!!! they sit in their ranch type ghetto styled smelly houses posting nonsense on the front page without a care in the world!!!!
But alas change has come mark my words this cannot continue in Nigeria, you think you can just post any story and be absolved of any form of legal prosecution? Eventually you guys will GO TOO FAR ONEDAY, AND OSEWA WILL ARRESTED, then your eyes will be clear!!! whether you like it or not PEOPLE MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE!!! a society WITHOUT LAWS LEADS TO CHAOS!!!
nairaland cannot continue posting whatever it likes all for the sake of garri money gotten via ads!!!!!
Seun Osewa cannot try this in a developed country , the legal team of Wole Soyinka would have sued him and the Cable for besmirching his name!!!!

Osewa is a virus who is benefiting from the present lawless state of the country or he wouldn't be encouraging this nonsense with his illiterate stup1d mods!!!!
BEST YOU WOULD DO IS BAN MY FOR SPEAKING THE TRUTH AND WHO GIVES A HOOT?!!!!

BUNCH OF UNEDUCATED BABOONS CALLED MODS!!!!

Small wonder why linda ikeji came out after yet blew this gutter website away, let me tell you m0r0ns called mods a secret, do you know why no serious brand will advertise here? because this gutter, garbage, useless, nonsensical website, has not even one classy moderator!!!!!

No serious brand would ever want to be associated with Seun Osewa and this rubbish website!!!!!!

Off course there will be the occasional lets risk it and try, but trust me the real paid ads would go to bella naija and lindaikejiis not this rubbish website!!!!!!
