Nobel laureate Professor Wole Soyinka has sparked controversy with his recent comments about Peter Obi’s presidential ambitions. 

In a podcast interview with ‘The Noble Nigeria Podcast’, Soyinka expressed his hope that Obi would not contest the next presidential election, citing concerns about the competence of his team to lead Nigeria.

Soyinka’s comments have generated significant attention, particularly among Peter Obi’s supporters, who have been vocal in their criticism of the Nobel laureate’s stance. 

This is not the first time Soyinka has spoken out about Obi’s campaign; earlier, he had rebuked Obi’s supporters for their reactions to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s victory in the 2023 general elections.

In the podcast interview, Soyinka emphasized his concerns about the ability of Obi’s team to effectively govern Nigeria, stating that he hopes Obi will not contest the next presidential election.
