For lampooning President Goodluck Jonathan and the administration, the Presidency Tuesday took a swipe at Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, saying the government is the most liberal.
In a text message, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, the presidency urged the literary giant to also attack governor Rotimi Amaechi for his statements which were capable of over heating the polity.
Okupe said, “Our eminent Professor also sadly plays the ostrich as he failed to reprimand governor Rotimi Amaechi who is the national champion of impunity and official reckless ness.
“The administration of President Goodluck Jonathan prides itself as the most liberal, keeping faith with adherence to rule of law and tolerance.”
Prof. Soyinka had said while briefing Journalists in Lagos that governance has degenerated to a level where any individual on account of his uniform can stop an elected representative of a people from going about his legitimate duty
