– Wole Soyinka has declared that he wouldn’t be voting for the APC or PDP
– The Nobel Literate hinted that he would be voting for a new party entirely
Nigerian foremost Nobel Literate, Wole Soyinka in a new statement in an event at Freedom Park on Lagos Island, Lagos State made it known that he wouldn’t be voting for the candidates of the All Progressive Congress APC or the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in the coming election.
The Nobel Literate at the event organized by the Citizen Forum noted that it was now time for the country to move to another direction apart from the PDP and the APC.
He hinted that he finds the APC and the PDP worthy of absolute rejection.
The Nobel Literate made it known that there is a coalition going on underground already that will produce a consensus candidate.
Wole Soyinka in his statement today said,
“For the avoidance of doubt, let me make my position quite clear because I don’t want any ambiguity; I Wole Soyinka will not be voting for either the two so called contesting parties [PDP or APC]. I find both of them worthy of absolute rejection,” Soyinka said.
“For a number of reasons which I will not go into here, I’m not interested in a comparative assessment. My position is simply that it is time for a totally new direction. And obviously, I’m not the only one, as I’m speaking, there is a coalition having its meeting in Lagos from which they hope to produce a consensus candidate.
“There is another group meeting in Abuja, also at the end would send us their consensus candidate. Things have been going on quietly in the background to try and change the direction of this nation in a very positive way, and to make the public understand that they do not have to be enslaved permanently to the old discredited order. It is my sole business in this election”
