First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan yesterday hit back at Nobel laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, saying out of sheer “self-righteously indignant lecterns”, he had betrayed his moral duty in his recent tirade on her in which he linked her to the ongoing crisis rocking her home state of Rivers.
In a statement by her special assistant on media, Mr. Ayo Osinlu, the first lady accused Soyinka of taking sides with Amaechi because “they are friends.”
“Prof Soyinka’s friendship with Amaechi is no secret. There is no attempt by the two to hide it, anyway. On the premise of that, the cerebral prodigy should encourage his younger friend to retrace his steps, make peace with his party and the people of his state, as well as smoothen the feathers he has ruffled.
