Nobel laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, has denied throwing his weight behind the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu.

Soyinka described a social media remark linking him to Tinubu’s endorsement as false.

In a statement by his media office, Nigerians were told to disregard reports that the playwright and activist issued a message denigrating political parties and politicians.

“Professor Soyinka did NOT at any time or on any occasion issue such a statement. It is simply the work of peddlers of fake news and falsehood, who profit from misinformation to gain political advantages,” the playwright said.

“The media and members of the public are advised to ignore the message or any other political message that addresses or targets any political party or political actor” the statement reads.
