Nobel prize winner Prof wole Soyinka has challenged labour party vice presidential candidate to a one on one interview.
Datti Baba-Ahmed called on president Buhari and the chief justice of Nigeria not to swear Tinubu in as the president of Nigeria.
Datti Baba-Ahmed said that “whoever wears in Mr Tinubu has ended democracy” , and this did not go down well with Prof Wole Soyinka.
remarks as a “kind of do-or-die attitude and provocation” that goes contrary to democratic disposition.
Wole Soyinka said the LP vice-presidential candidate tried to “dictate to the supreme arbiter of the nation”, adding that it was unacceptable.
He also said :
“I have never heard anyone threaten the judiciary on television the way Datti did. I heard the kind of menacing, blackmailing language as that to which we were treated to by Datti.
That kind of do-or-die attitude and provocation is not what I think we have all been struggling for,”
“Nearly the totality of Datti’s comment in the interview was unbecoming.
It was like trying to dictate to the supreme arbiter of the nation, and whatever you think of the supreme court, it is an institution we all refer to sooner or later.
“But Datti kept saying, in his wisdom, that the supreme court must agree with me.
That is what is known as fascistic language and it is not acceptable.”
However, this did not go down well with many supporters of the Labour party supporters as they dragged Soyinka on social media.
