Soyinka Drops Bombshell, Alleges Plot To Annul 2023 Polls: ‘History Was About To Repeat Itself

Published by admin on

Renowned playwright Professor Wole Soyinka has raised alarms, alleging underground plots to annul the 2023 general elections, drawing parallels with the annulment of the June 12, 1993 elections by the Ibrahim Babangida military government.

Speaking on Channels Television, Soyinka expressed concern about the possibility of history repeating itself and emphasized the need to avoid the mistakes of the past.

Soyinka also criticized the recent interview by Datti Baba-Ahmed, the vice-presidential candidate of the Labour Party, labeling it as “menacing” and “disgraceful.”

He responded to Baba-Ahmed’s comments on Bola Tinubu’s eligibility, stating that, at that point, the competition shifted from democracy to an individual pursuit of power.

“I am alleging that there was a conspiracy from the very beginning before the election to make sure the elections did not take place or that even if the voting did take place, that everything be reverted to what happened under Babangida.

“History was about to repeat itself, some people were determined to take us back to those days.

“So, for me, it was no longer a contest between individuals, it was now a contest between the so-called interim political party and democracy.”


While speaking on the show, Soyinka described the interview of Baba-Ahmed’s interview as “menacing” and “disgraceful.”

He branded the interview of the Labour Party vice presidential candidate as the “ultimate signal” for chaos.

Soyinka said:

“At that interview by Datti, that disgraceful and menacing interview, was for me the ultimate signal because this was somebody calling for the rubbishing of a structure he profited to ever become a governor,”
