The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, AAC, Omoyele Sowore, has revealed that frontline playwright, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has refused to endorse him.
Sowore, who is among the candidates hoping to win the February 16 presidential election, revealed this in a post on Instagram on Sunday.
Sowore, who had earlier vowed never to step down for anyone, remains steadfast that he would be sworn in as Nigeria’s President come May 29.
Sowore wrote on Instagram, “Prof. Wole Soyinka has expressed to me in private his decision to back a different candidate.
“We should therefore not be surprised should he choose to announce this.
“While I might disagree with his decision, I have great respect for the Nobel Laureate and urge ‘TakeItBackers’ to accord him the utmost respect at all times.”
