Professor Wole Soyinka has lambasted a ‘former president’ who is claiming to be the conscience of the nation, and has asked Nigerians to be wary of him.

The Nobel Laureate who made this submission in Abuja on Wednesday at a symposium on fake news, asked newsmen to avoid the spread of fake news.

Soyinka, who was a panelist at the event tagged, ‘Nigeria 2019: Countering Fake News’, stated that if the former leader had been referring to a certain person for eight years as ‘a devil’ and is now telling Nigerians to vote for the devil, then there is a reason for Nigerians to express some doubt.

“We have got to develop a very healthy skepticism. If someone in a position of power for eight years has lectured a nation for eight years and after that, continued year after year to continue to direct the minds of a whole nation in one direction, only saying, ‘This is Lucifer from hell’ for eight years in office and several more years out of office saying, ‘This is Lucifer’ and then one day he changed and says: ‘Behold your redeemer;’ which of the two is fake news?” the scholar was quoted by The Punch.
