Soyinka said, “The voice of Ajibola Ige, slain Minister of Justice, resounds from beyond the grave.
“Those who conspired to catapult his destroyers to unmerited national prominence, to insult the memories of the living, and jettison basic ethical constraints, have been justly served.
“It is a lesson that speaks to other zones of rightful public expectations, equity, and just entitlements. One despairs but continues to hope that there are still receptive minds in which such lessons will germinate.
“If we may adapt a wise saying from the ancients: the beast of burden, nicknamed Equity, ambles its mined course to destination but, sooner or later, that donkey arrives.”
The playwright in April 2022, protested against the emergence of a former deputy governor of Osun State, Chief Iyiola Omisore, as APC’s national secretary at the party’s 2022 national convention held between March 26 and 27, where 77 national officers emerged.
