I Hope Peter Obi Doesn’t Contest Next Presidential Election, His Team Is Incompetent To Lead Nigeria —Wole Soyinka


The iliterary icon further accused Obi of controlling the online trolls responsible for the insults directed at him and other prominent figures who raised critical questions about the party’s campaign during the electioneering period.

Nobel Laureate Prof Wole Soyinka has said he hopes Peter Obi, a former Labour Party presidential candidate, will not contest the next election.


Soyinka said this in a recent interview with Noble Nigeria, arguing that the actions of the Labour Party leadership in the last election showed that he and his team were not fit to govern Nigeria.

The literary icon further accused Obi of controlling the online trolls responsible for the insults directed at him and other prominent figures who raised critical questions about the party’s campaign during the electioneering period.

Soyinka was constantly insulted by Obi’s supporters, known as ‘Obidients’ on social media, especially X.

Soyinka said, “It has to do with education. I didn’t read all these (insults by Obidient Movement) but of course, some links were sent to me, especially when facts were ‘being manufactured’.

“When I read these things, I was disgusted. There’s no other word for it. I really was disgusted and I know that it was orchestrated.

“I know that there is a relay mechanism, which is triggered into action by those who control what we call the trolls of the Internet, and so my disgust and contempt. I just went about my business, you know, because nobody, anybody on this earth who thinks they can stop me telling the truth as I see it needs to have his or her head examined. It’s as elementary as that.

“But it is depressing to see those who wanted to be political leaders encouraging that kind of action, that kind of attitude in the youth. And my mind went to the expression, ‘They don’t know what they’re doing’. Those who sow the wind will reap the whirlwind.”

Soyinka, who described the online trolls as “foot soldiers” added that “they’ve trained in that aspect”.

He said, “One of these days, they would be astonished, they would turn on them and teach them a lesson. And so, my attitude was very blasé and it is for me a sad phenomenon, especially for those who want to lead multi-textured (society)- different religions, different ethnic groups, different worldviews - who actually want to preside over such a group as one. It means that they have already declared themselves incompetent to lead such an entity.”

When asked about Obi and his candidacy in the last election, Soyinka said, “I hope for the sake of the nation that he doesn’t express interest in the next election because for me as a leader, if there was any proof that he was unfit to lead that country, it’s in the conduct which he encouraged among his followers.”

His friend and brother with the competent team is showing us shege.

This so called Gbajue has never criticised his government.

Dollar is 1500
PMS is 800-1000
Inflation at over 33%
Insecurity high
Hunger
Poverty
Corruption

He has never contributed anything to move the nation forward nor kicked against his darling Bola.

Have you ever seen soyinka condemn bandits, kidnapping, inflation, devaluation?

He even promised to rate Tinubu's Government after one year. This is one year and all he is still doing is insult Obi and anything he stands for.

Below is picture of him protesting against removal of fuel subsidy. Today no more subsidy and things are really tough for NIGERIANs and his problem is Peter Obi and Obidients.😂


NIGERIANs look at your so called intellectuals!!

Wole Soyinka really fell off.

Instead of Wole Soyinka to be planning to release his assessment of Tinubu's Government after 1 year like he said, it is Peter Obi he is focusing on.

The shameless Wole Soyinka wants to use Peter Obi and Obidients to distract people from asking him where is his assessment of Tinubu’s Government.

According to the IMF, Nigeria’s $375 billion GDP, is going to shrink to a $253 billion Economy by the end of 2024.

Bola Tinubu is not only incompetent but aloof. His failures are inexcusable. But Peter Obi and Obidients are the problem

Prof. Gbajue continue!!

All his years of intimidating people, he has never encountered what he saw in 2023.
Even his birthday celebration that used to be the talk of town went unnoticed.

They will insult you again for this truth you have spoken.
But you can only try, you cant stop pigs from rolling in the mud, the best you can do which you are already doing is never get in the mud with them.

Never seen a group of humans as uncultured as these breed of dogs.

Few days Tinubu the Jagaban was out of the country they already started spreading rumours of his death, some were already celebrating, if he had not returned when he did we would have been told he was cloned....

As a matter of fact one a few weeks ago was still going on and on about Buhari being a clone.
He was showing people pictures of the ear.
I asked him if he remembered that Buhari had an ear surgery around that time he said it was propaganda.

If the truth doesnt fit into their story then its a propaganda....

I still thank God that we sane Nigerians voted for the right person.

They loved Nigeria when they thought that boy was going to win.
Today they pray everyday for Nigeria to fail.
They call everu good news propaganda and dance to every bad news.

The obidient movement is a demonic movement, you have to be possessed for you to celebrate bad news and hate good news.
Its not normal....

So so true. I totally agree with Soyinka. Imagine Aisha Yusufu as Minister of Finance, The other Arise TV boy (Rufai Oseni) as Minister of Information, Charlie Boy as Minister of Arts and Culture. Kenneth Okonkwo as Justice Minister. What a joke. But since obidients are dummies, they won't understand.

I agree with you...

Especially on hindsight. Towards the election, I was almost swayed to his corner due to the hype and all.

In retrospect though atiku would have been the best man for the job of the front line trio.

He would at least have brought stability to the economy.

Still a bit early for Tinubu though... But I don't see the direction his government is headed.

At least not yet... Seems like he is running out of steam too early!

He lost the audacity to demand respect when he insulted every member of Jonathan's family for political support of the opposition. .

This man who called Goodluck Jonathan's wife "Shippopotamus" is bereft of respect.

He believes in Yoruba's turn. Any of his assertions are geared to any threat to the minority government of Ahmed Tinubu.

Peter Obi himself is very incompetent

Under him poverty in Anambra state doubled, his roads were substandard, he was stealing state funds to build brewery for himself.

In his personal life, his only son became a homosexual due to his failure as a father.
