OBJ Exchanged Oil Blocks For Sex – Soyinka

The former President Olusegun Obasanjo has been accused by Professor Wole Soyinka to have awarded oil blocks for sexual satisfaction in the past.

The Nobel Laureate who claimed he was sure of the accusation challenged Obasanjo to swear in that effect and prove his innocence.

NEWS has it, the accusation was  made by Soyinka when speaking during his Interventions VIII series, titled: ‘Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes?’ also sub-titled ‘Gani’s Unfinished Business.”

Speaking during the event which was launched not long ago in Lagos State, Soyinka said:“I now challenge you (Obasanjo) to search your soul, very deeply, and swear to this nation that you never awarded oil blocks in return for sexual gratification.”

“I do not make accusations lightly and I despise snide insinuations. I believe you know me well enough. And I am no prude, I am not a hypocrite of sexual desire, nor am I interested in the seamy side of Power.”

“Take your time, think deeply and remember that each day brings you closer and closer to your Maker and the Day of Judgment-going by your own professions.”

He further added, “If I denounce you (Obasanjo) as a degenerate in need of help, remember that I do not require fiction. Verifiable truth is solemnly at my disposal.”

“I do not concoct a thousand snipers for a thousand listed enemies of governance-one of the most impudent egregious fantasies ever manufactured by a former ruler, simply to destroy a successor and persuade oneself that one is a maker and breaker of governments.”
Soyinka also spoke on the allegation laid against him by Obasanjo in an occasion meant to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the former president’s library.
According to Soyinka, Obasanjo accused him of working against his ambitions to become the Secretary-General of the United Nations.

Denying the allegation, however, Soyinka said: “could someone please stop crediting me with that level of international clout? Of course, I feel totally content and fulfilled with my contribution to that operation to ‘save our world’ from the clutches of a predator, sadist and liar-convincing evidence of which we provided in our successful diplomatic offensive-but the umbrage should also go to that very Femi Falana and the late Beko Ransome-Kuti, with whom I worked in close collaboration.”

Soyinka stressed that Obasanjo was one of those who got this country to the unpalatable stage it is.
