#EmpiricalEvidence: Twitter Reacts to Soyinka’s Outburst

Soyinka wants to draw blood with the nastiest book he's ever written | YNaija.com

Excerpts from Wole Soyinka’s recent lecture, “Predicting Nigeria? Electoral Ironies”, at Harvard have finally trickled down to the Nigerian media and given its polarizing content, #NigerianTwitter hasn’t taken too kindly to it.

The Igbos are probably the only group of Nigerians that you can predict with great accuracy whom they will vote for in an election, because they tend to put their votes where their stomachs take them; suffering as it were, from incurable money-mindedness, as they would stop at nothing in their quest for personal financial gain.

Hosted by the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research, the Department of African and African American Studies, and the Center for African Studies, Soyinka touched a variety of topics but his comments on Igbo voting patterns have drawn the ire of many.
