Soyinka Finally Breaks Silence On Airplane Seat Incident

Soyinka Finally Breaks Silence On Airplane Seat Incident

Nobel laureate Prof. Wole Soyinka has said he cannot wrongly identify an airline seat and then attempt to consolidate the error in any form.

Naijaparry reports that business mogul Tonye Cole revealed how an unidentified young man refused to give up his seat for the playwright during an international flight.

Reacting on Saturday in his first official statement on the issue, the social critic advised 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 cases.

Soyinka noted that 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.

He said, “Those who permit themselves to be persuaded, even for one second that I, Wole Soyinka, having wrongly identified a seat number like millions of travellers 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.’’
