Professor Wole Soyinka has said that he has nothing to do with the Supreme Court case over Imo State governorship between Senator Hope Uzodimma and Hon. Emeka Ihedioha.
The Nobel Laureate was reacting to a link to a report by one of the national newspapers on the Uzodimma vs Ihedioha.
That report, Soyinka stated, claims that he has been engaged to serve on a monitoring team regarding a forthcoming Supreme Court Review of the case.
“I know NOTHING of this development and I am NOT involved in any aspect of the tussle. I know NOTHING of this Third Force Democracy whatever. I have no intention of participating in any judicial monitoring activity and demand to be kept out of any such false attributions. Hopefully, some day in the distant future, it will be possible for the nation to regain the respect of the world in its democratic claims. That time, alas, is not immediately apparent,” he stated.
The Supreme Court had earlier sacked Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general election in Imo State, paving the way for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Uzodinma to become governor.
