    Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka said the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi is “unfit” to lead Nigeria.

    Soyinka stated in an interview with Noble Eyisi on Thursday.

    Recall that Obi finished third behind Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 presidential election.

    Soyinka said he hopes that Obi does not vie for the presidency in the 2027 election.

    He 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.

    “I know for a fact that he was in control of those forces,” he added.

    The Nobel prize winner added that dishonest political leaders are encouraging the “divisive actions of the group.”

    He said “one of these days, they would turn on them and teach them a lesson”.

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

    “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.
