Peter Obi Visit Wole Soyinka Weeks After Obidients Attacked Nobel Laureate



Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate in the 2023 general election, Peter Obi, has visited Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka.

The visit comes weeks after Soyinka was verbally attacked by Obi’s supporters aptly called obedient.

On Sunday, May 7, Obi paid a courtesy visit to Prof Soyinka.

Soyinka had earlier received condemnation from Obidients after he accused them of Fascism, adding that they don’t ‘entertain corrective criticism’.  He also stated that he warned Obi that his supporters may cost him the election.

He further incurred the wrath of the Obideint movement after publishing an article in which he described the ‘Obidients’ as one of the ‘’most repulsive, off-putting concoctions I ever encountered in any political arena”

Posting photos from the visit online, Obi wrote;

‘’Today, I visited one of Nigeria’s most revered figures and an international literary icon, Prof Wole Soyinka. Prof Soyinka has been a father whom I hold in very high esteem for what he has achieved and stands for in the struggle for a better Nigeria. His reputation as a fighter for justice and equity in our society has been legendary and we will NEVER ignore them. I had a very useful and enriching discussion about his aspirations for a better and greater Nigeria, and he shared a lot with me about his dream for a greater and more inclusive Nigeria. I reminded the Nobel laureate of the huge price he paid just before the outbreak of the civil war, fighting for the cause of the Igbos. I cherished this Sunday’s visit which was intended to erase the needless misconceptions about the relationship between the great icon and the OBIdient family.”
