Professor Wole Soyinka Speaks On Muslim Muslim Ticket

Professor Wole Soyinka Speaks On Muslim Muslim TicketNobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka has spoken about the furore surrounding APC Muslim-Muslim presidential Ticket in the upcoming Election.
According to him such agitation either for or against Apc Muslim ticket is Unnecessary.

While also stating that the outcry was a reflection of how the country has been fractured along it’s religious lines and it’s citizen made to look different from childhood.

He expressed this without beating around the bush on Tuesday 2 August in Abeokuta, Ogun State as mediator of the talk/intuitive meeting coordinated by the noteworthy Abeokuta Club to check its 50th commemoration.

The theme of the lecture was:Good Governance or Misgovernance: The Contract called Democracy.

The scholary symbol, acknowledging the presence of secondary school students in uniform whom he said events like that for him were primarily for, also used the opportunity to condemn the controversies triggered by the Muslim/Muslim presidential ticket and whether students should be allowed to wear religious garbs to schools.

He said”There is one other thing going on in my mind. And I think we have the experts here who will talk about it. There are some school children over there. And one wonderful thing about them for me is that they are in uniform. In other words I cannot tell which one is a Christian, which one is a Muslim, which one is an Orisa worshipper, which one is a Zoroastrian, which one is a Buddhist. They are school children.

“They are equal and they are being encouraged to see one another as human beings, not as separate creatures. And I want to be informed if it is against democracy that schools insist that uniforms be worn by children so that they are not distinguished in a very dramatic way. So that they do not look at one another as different.

“These are issues which I hope we will also touch. Because when we hear expressions like Muslim/Muslim ticket, Christian/Christian ticket, Orisa/Orisa worshipper ticket. This is where it all begins. This is where the nervousness begins. This is where the anxiety and the phobia begin.

“This is where it begins, when you teach the children to be different at an age
when they are so impressionable. These are issues I hope you will help to resolve,” Soyinka maintained.
