In what can be termed a peaceful visitation, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the last general election, Peter Obi, visited Prof Wole Soyinka a few weeks after his Obidients family dragged and ridiculed and ridiculed and ridiculed Soyinka online on his post-election comment and Obidents attitude.



Taking to his social media page, Peter Obi writes:

Today, I visited one of Nigeria’s most revered figures and an international literary icon, Prof Wole Soyinka. Prof Soyinka has been a father whom I hold in very high esteem for what he has achieved and stands for in the struggle for a better Nigeria.

His reputation as a fighter for justice and equity in our society has been legendary and we will NEVER ignore them. I had a very useful and enriching discussion about his aspirations for a better and greater Nigeria, and he shared a lot with me about his dream for a greater and more inclusive Nigeria. I reminded the Nobel laureate of the huge price he paid just before the outbreak of the civil war, fighting for the cause of the Igbos.

I cherished this Sunday's visit which was intended to erase the needless misconceptions about the relationship between the great icon and the OBIdient family. -PO
