Prof. Soyinka denies blasting the Igbos, & says whoever believes he did so is a moron


Professor Wole Soyinka has recently released a statement denying reports that said he trashed the Igbos during his lecture at Harvard University last week. The prof was quoted to have said ‘the Igbos voted based on their stomach and suffer from incurable money mindedness’. The Nobel Laureate says he never made a statement like that and anyone who believes he did say it is a moron. Read statement below…

“I have just read a statement attributed to me on something called The Cable, a news outlet, evidently one of the Internet infestations. My lecture at the Hutchins Centre, Harvard University, was video recorded. Anyone who believes what I am alleged to have said must be a moron – repeat, a moron. It is demeaning, sickening and boring to have to deal with these cowards who cannot fight their own battles but must fasten their imbecilic pronouncements on others. Only the mentally retarded will credit this comment attributed to me regarding the Ndigbo voting pattern in the last elections. I strongly suspect the author of this despicable concoction, and may make a further statement, once the source is verified.”
