Wole Soyinka Attacks Patience Jonathan Again in New Speech

The eminent playwright  "Wole Soyinka" has criticized madam Patience onces again for the use of what he terms crude and vulgar language in her recent comments.. The Nobel laureate writer made the comments on Tuesday, March 10, in Lagos during the public presentation of a book titled “Modern and Tradition Elite in the Politics of Lagos” written by Ambassador Patrick Dele Cole.

Professor Soyinka accused the Presidency of taking a prominent part in the crudeness using a recent statement attributed to First Lady, Patience Jonathan as an example.

“Speaking as objectively as is possible in such circumstances, I would say that, among the various camps, the most reckless and indelicate has sadly proved the incumbent camp, where restraint has been thrown to the wind with such abandon that even highly privileged spouses have publicly urged supporters to stone any voices raised in opposition to their cause, 

All of us here have passed through the electoral process furnace before now and I suspect we would mostly agree that never before have we been subjected to this level of sheer venom, crudity of and vulgar abuse of language in such prodigal quantities as in this current political exercise, The very gift of communication, considered the distinguishing mark of cultured humanity even in situations involving dispute, has been debased, affecting even thought processes, I often suspect,” he added.

Mrs. Jonathan urged her supporters to stone members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) during a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rally in Lokoja, Kogi State
