Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka on Thursday vowed not to vote for the presidential candidates of the APC, Muhammadu Buhari and that of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar in next month’s presidential election.
Soyinka spoke at an event organised by Citizen Forum, held at the Freedom Park on Lagos Island, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.
The Nobel laureate said he outrightly rejected the the two major presidential candidates for a number of reasons.
Soyinka said it was time for the nation to move into a new direction different from that of the PDP or APC.
He stated that a coalition was about to be born to produce a consensus candidate to challenge the APC and PDP.
Soyinka said he did not believe in negative votes or protest votes but creative voting that would produce result, saying that it had happened in other climes.
