Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka on Tuesday disowned a report claiming that he has been engaged to serve on a monitoring team regarding a forthcoming Supreme Court Review of the case between Governor Hope Uzodinma and Emeka Ihedioha in Imo State.
Soyinka, in a statement said a link to a report on the Uzodimma vs Ihedioha electoral tussle had just been sent to him.
“That report claims that I have been engaged to serve on a monitoring team regarding a forthcoming Supreme Court Review of that 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 said.
