"Professor Wole Soyinka Is An Embarrassment To Nigeria" - Patience Jonathan 3

Patience Jonathan, has replied Prof. Wole Soyinka, for attributing the crisis in the Rivers State House of Assembly to her. (If you missed it, read it HERE)

In a statement by her spokesman, Ayo Osinlu, the First Lady said Soyinka betrayed the moral duty that was expected of him as a respected member of the society, to carefully consider all shades of issues that informed his opinions on any matter.

Mrs. Jonathan said Soyinka had become an embarrassment to his admirers with his diatribe against her.

“Unfortunately, Soyinka betrayed moral duty in his recent diatribe against Mrs. Patience Jonathan.

“Of course, this would not be the first time he would reach out against the First Lady, usually from self-righteously indignant lecterns.

“In this particular instance, his verdict was that Mrs. Jonathan was ‘stoking the crisis currently rocking her home state of Rivers…’, and thereupon asked Mr. President to caution his wife.

“The good, old Prof. reminds one of the truth that indeed, most of the giants on the street are men of like passions like everyone else. Worse still, most of them are actually standing on clay feet and would fail the test of a gentle push.


“Otherwise, who would have believed that the social, civil, constitutional and sundry rights crusader Prof. would maintain a safe distance from the heart of an activity that is a potential threat to the peace, security and safety of the people of a state, then collect exaggerated stories and jaundiced perspectives from familiar propagandists and character assassins, and promptly summon the media to a ‘state of the nation’ address.

“It’s an embarrassment to his throng of admirers and followers, that a sage of Prof. Soyinka’s status, who used to be a gauge of public morality in this nation, would lend himself to a propaganda of high drive, to save a governor who elected to launch into a river without applicable survival skills,” the statement read in part.

Mrs. Jonathan argued that the plan was to attack the President and pull to pieces anyone associated with him, as a strategy for attracting public sympathy to the “clear underdog.”

According to her, Soyinka was only contributing to the project when he claimed that she was Governor Rotimi Amaechi’s problem.

    See Aunty Peshe ohhhh!!!! Who helped her to write this English because its magic. Aunty Peshe please if you can listen to me; your own First Lady is turning into something else. First you go on National TV and say that when you were sick people tried to sell your property, then you turn and fight Yaraduas wife, then you fight Chibuike Amaechi and now Wole Soyinka…hmmm easy Aunty. Choose your battles carefully. There is life after Aso Rock Abeg.

    Guys, I feel sad when ppl comment on issues they know nothing about. Mrs Patience has her problems…but don't trust anyone when it comes to political jingles and rhymes. Prof Soyinka suddenly turned a dear darling of Amaechi for his personal benefits. Don't forget d prof was once a dear darling of Jonathan, during d champaign period when he was heading d Jonathan "read book" (can't remember d right name now) project. Maybe the cash is no longer flowing in his direction. My respect will forever go to the late icon, Chinua. He never allowed this ppl drag him to d mud. I so pitty Soyinka, Cuz he's being soiled long ago with cheap spoils from political wins. They are all birds of same feather…non holier than the other.
