Nigerian author and Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka has denied endorsing the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress party ahead of this week’s election, the local Punch newspaper reports.

It follows a widely circulated statement on social media claiming the author had endorsed Bola Tinubu.

The newspaper quoted an email from the author as saying “Professor Soyinka did not at any time or on any occasion issue such a statement”.

“It is simply the works of peddlers of fake news and falsehood, who profit from misinformation to gain political advantages,” it added.
