Prof Wole Soyinka

Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka on Wednesday said there was plot to annul the 2023 presidential election won by President Bola Tinubu.

Soyinka, in an interview on Channels TV, said the plot was reminiscence of the 1993 presidential election cancelled by former military Head of State, Ibrahim Babangida (retd.)

According to Soyinka, history was about to repeat itself as some people were determined to take the nation back to those days.

Soyinka added: “I am alleging that there was a conspiracy from the very beginning before the election to make sure the elections did not take place or that even if the voting did take place, that everything be reverted to what happened under Babangida.

“When we all just woke up and discovered that even though the results have been calculated, even though the results were in possession of international bodies, including monitoring embassies and so on, even if we had the results directly, it was suddenly annulled.”
