"Declaration Of IPOB As A Terrorist Organisation Is An Absurdity"- Wole Soyinka by zendy: 1:03am On Jan 15, 2018
“This question is now current, and justified: just when is terror? I am not aware that IPOB came anywhere close to this homicidal propensity and will to dominance before it was declared a terrorist organization. The international community rightly refused to go along with such an absurdity.
“For the avoidance of doubt, let me state right here, and yet again, that IPOB leadership is its own worst enemy. It repels public empathy, indeed, I suspect that it deliberately cultivates an obnoxious image, especially among its internet mouthers who make rational discourse impossible. However, as we pointed out at the time, the conduct of that movement, even at its most extreme, could by no means be reckoned as terrorism. By contrast, how do we categorize Myeti? How do we assess a mental state that cannot distinguish between a stolen cow – which is always recoverable – and human life, which is not.

Oh my God I'm being trolled by an illiterate, wetin person no go see for nairaland. Well unlike your father, my dad actually went to school and graduated with a 2'1 so I think he is a lot wiser than a 3rd class attention seeking graduate
Wole soyinka never graduated with 3rd class. He made second class upper and then went abroad where he made first class in his masters.
I wonder how you people never verify information before proliferating it. By the way, who grades epp? His books speak for him. I am ibo and i feel nigerians do not deserve soyinka. Sorry to say.

You are grossly uninformed. You listen to the likes of people who claim india scored 99 - 1 against nigeria. Do your research and stop regurgitating public claim. Same people also said albert einstein failed maths, just to console themselves of their inabilities or something motivational speakers use to motivate stupid people.
Wole soyinka has said it himself and his classmates backed him up. He made second class upper and then made first class abroad, believe it or console yourself with bullshit.

I know that the reason it took him so long to debunk the stupid rumor is because he feels all those certificate doesnt mean anything. Where are all your first class graduate classmates today are they the ones doing best? So oga calm down first class doesnt determine shit. I made a very good grade from University of Nigeria Nsukka and i have never used my certificate to look for job but i have a job that pays me more than all my classmated since before nysc. Get your facts right mr man.

About donald trump writing a book that completely alludes to the stupid motivational speakers i talked about earlier. Yes, donald trump appeal to certain people so his books should appeal to such people too. If a good percentage of people voted for donald trump, why shouldnt a good percentage buy his books. That doesnt mean he is wise, it means there are a lot of people with the IQ of an empty bucket out there. These set of people follow individuals who appeal to their emotions like zombies. Wole soyinka on the other hand writes books that appeal to the intellect which is a reflection of who he is.

You watch too much CNN or simply a victim of the homosexual, open-border, crime loving Liberal MSM.

What's this one saying? The guy was already a best selling "author" long before he even went into politics or became a president, lemme even go down this route what is your proof that wole soyinka actually wrote those books? Fine we choose to trust him and what's my business but you have no idea what people do when writing a book there are ghost writers, stolen content and even meddling from the publishing company so like I said, you are pointing in the wrong direction

The international community rightly refused to go along with such an absurdity- Woke Soyinka

They were targeted because they were resisting Buhari's plan to Islamize Nigeria

Also they were the only tribe that knew that Buhari was up to no good

Were they not justified afterall
