In a manner that looks shocking and funny on the other hand to many, while the celebration of June 12 was going on today June 12, 2018, Professor Soyinka was allowed to address the people, and in his usual way, Professor Wole Soyinka, the first African to be honoured with Nobel Laurate in Literature, urged the President to go a way further from the celebration of the life of Chief MKO Abiola, the presumed winner of June 12 elections in 1993, by creating a hall of shame for those who made Nigeria to be in this condition of pain and poverty.
Professor Soyinka made it clear that the likes of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, retired General Ibrahim Babangida, the like of David Mark, etc should be in such hall of shame.
This demand made many of the participants to burst into hysterical laughter as they believed that such request was directed to Obasanjo who is known as a man that benefited from the death of MKO Abiola yet he refused to appreciate him nor honour MKO in return.
Obasanjo and Prof Wole Soyinka are perceived enemies in principles despite coming from same parts of the country, in fact, same state- Ogun State.
