Wole Soyinka, an embarrassment - Patience Jonathan

Lol, she's one to talk, with all due respect. Hehe. Culled from Punch
Wife of the President, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, on Friday took on the Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, for attributing the crisis in the Rivers House of Assembly to her.
In a statement by her spokesman, Ayo Osinlu, the President’s wife said Soyinka betrayed the moral duty that expected him, as a respected member of the society, to carefully consider all shades of issues that informed his opinions on any matter.
Mrs. Jonathan said Soyinka had become an embarrassment to his admirers with his diatribe against her.
The statement read in part, “Unfortunately, Soyinka betrayed moral duty in his recent diatribe against Mrs. Patience Jonathan.
“Of course, this would not be the first time he would reach out against the First Lady, usually from self-righteously indignant lecterns.

“In this particular instance, his verdict was that Mrs. Jonathan was ‘stoking the crisis currently rocking her home state of Rivers…’, and thereupon asked Mr. President to caution his wife.
“The good, old Prof. reminds one of the truth that indeed, most of the giants on the street are men of like passions like everyone else. Worse still, most of them are actually standing on clay feet and would fail the test of a gentle push.

“Otherwise, who would have believed that the social, civil, constitutional and sundry rights crusader Prof. would maintain a safe distance from the heart of an activity that is a potential threat to the peace, security and safety of the people of a state, then collect exaggerated stories and jaundiced perspectives from familiar propagandists and character assassins, and promptly summon the media to a “state of the nation” address.

“It’s an embarrassment to his throng of admirers and followers, that a sage of Prof. Soyinka’s status, who used to be a gauge of public morality in this nation, would lend himself to a propaganda of high drive, to save a governor who elected to launch into a river without applicable survival skills.”
Mrs. Jonathan argued that the calculation was to attack the President and pull to pieces anyone associated with him, as a strategy for attracting public sympathy to the “clear underdog.”
She said Soyinka was only contributing to the project when he claimed that she was Governor Rotimi Amaechi’s problem.

I am seeing this current govt and her agenda loosing their taste of civility and moral standing. I don't see any reason why the so-called First Lady should talk to an elderly statesman with such verbal brutality, irrespective of what he (Soyinka)said to her.

The response by Patience was well deserved by Prof. His statement was a pure character assassination of the first lady of his country. He should have gone straight to address Patience's ill-timed and inciting visit to PH rather than making cheap of her personality. Im not a pro-Jonathan anyway, but our emotions must not becloud our sense of judgment. Mrs Dem Patience remains the first lady of Nigeria till 2015. Prof Soyinka and all of you who are going undully vulgar on her have no option for now, except you GTH. Enof of this ado about thing!

I want to believe that 99.9% of the the comments on this post are from young potential Nigerians, thus it hurts me to read all your comments which are either for or against the wife of the president. Conflict is never resolved by pointing fingers or dishing blame soup to someone for a problem. There is a problem in Rivers state and indeed in Nigeria as a hole; the last thing we want to be doing trying blame someone or some people for these problem. Even though it is tempting and obviously what we can do, we should try as much as possible to refrain from it; because blame only fuels and accelerate conflict. Our sole concern should be what we can do to solve the problem and make sure they don't reoccur.
The noble Prof Soyinka is a very respectable man, one of the most respectable and reputable Nigerian alive today, I have only two questions for you sir; if you start insulting the other people in society as you have done the wife of the president of our dear nation, what will the young people who look up to you do, when we are faced with people who over use their position of privilege? If you start pointing fingers and playing blame game, as you have done in the case of the crisis in River state what will youth like me that have set you as a role model do when I'm faced with crisis in my society?
We must understanding that for democracy and the Nigeria state to work we have to realize that we are one unit and one entity, that the failure of one is the failure of all, that the problem of one is the problem of all. I'm of the opinion that the first lady is as much to blame for the conflict in Rivers state as the governor of the state Gov Amaechi, as I am, as you are.
It is my belief that no conflict is unsolvable, only what is needed id flexibility and a touch of the sense of oneness.
Let us live in humility and solidarity, and Nigeria will grow.
God bless NIGERIA

Anonymous said...

Young Nigerians; what is wrong with you'all, go back, read all the comments you'all have been posting, don't you find it disturbing that it is so easy for us to slight a fellow Nigerian, especially someone in such a position as the first lady?
With such attitude I fear for the future of my country, I fear for the leadership my children will have.
The same embarrassment you'all are accusing the first lady of bringing to Nigeria, that is what each of you have brought to our dear country by posting those comments. In case you didn't realize; this is the internet, these blogs are not only read by Nigerians. Insulting the wife of the president of your country is insulting your country and every one in it. And you all have done it so the whole world can see.... I applaud you all, for representing the image of Nigeria to the world, thank you very much.
You all keep highlighting how much the first lady is prone to mistakes in her spoken English, who among you did not learn to speak English and stumbled along the way, and even with that how fluent are you really?! If you have never constructed an incorrect sentence; please by all means continue you despicable disgusting behavior, but if not; never any of you dare even mention the grammatical shortcoming of the first lady!

I thought her husband said the youths don't have respect for elders; this is a pure example, because the youths feel justified when they insult elders just the way she feels now. Furthermore, she claims not to have a hand in the Rivers State crisis as suggested by Soyinka, but the end of her tirade has just shown us that 'the Governor elected to launch himself into a River with no applicable survival skills'. I see that as self-revealing. Amaechi, you are in soup.

Patience is the mother of all disgraces. Wole Soyinka has brought more glory and honour to Nigeria than dis Olodo will ever in her life time. If she is someone's mother let her go and cook stew for them and supervise kitchen activities. Let her just do everyone a favour and STAY OUT of the limelight. It doesn't reflect well on her. It just magnifies her level of illiteracy .

she actually said this statement when she was addressing her fellow widows..lolz

Yetunde said...

why can't everyone stop acting childish and face the fact. whether or not the First lady is an expert at English language is too trivial an issue. the purpose of Linda's post is to seek your view on the matter, not on the quality of the First Lady's Use of English. The Prof. certainly made a derogatory remark and truth be told, he ought to eat the humble pie. that she is not as sound as him doesn't make her any less important. Lets set aside sentiments and address the actual issue.

Wasn't it the same Prof dat marched for GEJ to have the 1st seat? He should go & clear the lice on his beard & hair. they' re disturbing his brain.

You should only respect those that are meant 2 be respected. Our leaders don't deserve respect, those that deserve it are being respected and those that don't deserve it shuld be insulted away 4rm powe. So don't put God into this we all understand the word of God

The recent removal of armoured tanks and soldiers from the Rivers state governor's office confirmed the rumour that President Jonathan and his wife Patience had hands in the Rivers state crises. Wole Soyinka is absolutely correct with his utterances. Olusola Oso. http://www.olusolaoso.blogspot.com/

GETTING INVOLVED IN MATTERS LIKE THESE WILL ONLY BRING YOU DISRESPECT WHICH WILL BE SHOWN TO YOUR HUSBAND AS WELL....a word is enough for the wise.

This statement hasn't actually said anything of consequence and is just full of grammar for nothing. She should just keep quiet and tell her husband to stop opening his nyash for everybody to see. How can a president and governor be turning a country into the platform for a pissing contest? *hiss*

I don't belong to those who hop onto d bandwagon! As much as I don't approve of all done by the Presidency, may I affirm in d clearest terms, that Wole Soyinka isn't d saint he may proclaim to be, and dat, in truth, he really is an embarassment atimes. He clearly lacks d 'grace and honour' wt wch some of his contemporaries, like Chinua Achebe tackles issues. There is this 'ghetto' attribute to many of his actions and reactions. His veiled jealousy and envy is increasingly being unveiled by the day...Please, let's be objective here.

believe it or not the main thing that we remember our former presidents for is that they immerse enormous wealth at the expense of nigerians, while the literary works of people like soyinka will speak for them for generations to come just like our own linda here a blogger, but what can we really remember patience for, even just 6 months after leaving office.... hnmmm her grammatical blunders... my people i lie??

faazeme said...

Just as madam's been pointing accusing finger to Amaechi, Prof's got every righ to do the same to Madam and people should stop complaining about Prof. We've seen where a common American citizen criticizing the President, not to talk of Donald Trump publicly attacking the president. If madam runs her mouth like okro soup with no control, every citizen's got right to shut her up. Lawless Country!

SAMUEL said...

That Wole Soyinka is a professor and Noble Laureate mean he is too intelligent than others. He got his fame through luck and maybe other undisclosed forces. Coming out to insult the First Lady and wife of another man is enough reason to say his is not intelligent enough and an embarrassment to his admirers. He should not take side on the crises rocking Rivers State because he receives peanuts from Gov. Amechi whenever he is invited to chair an education summit in the state. He should be bold enough to condemn the Governor when he is derailing in his responsibilities. Does Prof. Soyinka have the moral right to insult another man's wife when he has non? Those running their mouth here should answer this.

Daniel aka reno omokri,stay there selling your future 4 peanuts.I'm sure d one dat birthed u copes with more dan enuff shame on ur behalf

Just Me said...

It irritates me how many fucking self righteous Nigerians try to defend e 1st lady (that is if she is) Prof Wole has the freaking right to make any statement he want about any Nigeria who is misbehaving including the president or his wife.
What i would have expected the President's wife to do was not to attack such reputable citizen someone who holds more respect than she will ever have.

Just Me said...

But all of us knw that if this was America, they would have finished madam since her husband became the presido. She just dey go up and down, wetin she dey do? nothing... I can't see her impact in the lives of Nigeria that people will applaud her for.

Just Me said...

Based on facts, Nigeria's 1st lady has no laudable record with her position, she impact positively in the lives of Nigerians and make people on the street smile and see if she will not get the backing of most Nigerians when issues like this arise.
All we see is how she and her husband travel and how she gives us gbagauns.... #MAKEIHEARWORD

Anonymous said...

wole Soyinka never call women domestic appendage, he only refered to her position in this context. she is suppose to look for something meaningful to do instead of engaging in meaningless struggle with Rotimi Amechi. truly she should learn how to be a lady and stop this local attitude of hers, leave politics to politicians and she should take up her role as the supposed first lady. for me Jonathan is a fool the biggest alive. when people cannot make decisions for themselves and they allow others to toss them around they are fools. he doesn't even know what he wants from life. and Mrs patience the biggest coward alive, when people believe they can do something they should do it well. if she wants to be the devil in Nigeria politics she should own up to her actions instead of denying her them. the idiots that accused wole Soyinka of divorcing 3times are primitive, when a relationship is not working you let go instead of dying there, that is the reason your parents pour hot water on themselves, mending their ruined relationships and to all of you that will abuse me , I say u are MAD
