Wrong Seat: I Will Not Justify Action – SOYINKA


Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka on Saturday (today) insisted that he cannot wrongly identify an airline seat number like millions of travelers do all the time, and all over the world, and then make the attempt to consolidate the error in any form, through act, word, or gesture.

It would be recalled that the development had gone viral on the social media, after business giant, Tonye Cole, made public how an unidentified young man refused to give up his seat for the playwright during an international flight.

Speaking on Saturday in his first official statement on the issue, the social critic urged airlines to impose fines on passengers who wrongly took seats on boarding and join proceeds from such initiative with donations from passengers to tackle worthy causes globally, especially health-related case.

According to Soyinka, “One would rejoice in the thought of such benefits to humanity in its efforts to eradicate all kinds of diseases, especially malnutrition, and ensure the supply of nutrients that prevent the premature onset of brain impairment.

“Those who permit themselves to be persuaded, even for one second that I, Wole Soyinka, having wrongly identified a seat number like millions of travelers all the time, and all over the world, would then attempt to consolidate the error in any form, through act, word, or gesture, qualify to be the first beneficiaries of this vastly improved humanitarian policy.’’
