When probed if the Labour Party vice presidential candidate will take up a debate with Soyinka, Nwaokobia said,“Oh yes, he will and effectively so. The least of the Obidients can take up that debate and do profoundly.

“I know Prof Wole Soyinka, I know he will not go for that debate because the point is that history is replete with facts and figures,” Prof Chris Nwakobia added.

He said,“Do you know that some of us see him as our mentor because he understands the fact that disobedience upon an unjust law is indeed the greatest respect for law.

“In 1965 or so with a gun he invaded a radio station and refused the announcement of Akintola as the winner of an election. History is such a beautiful spectacle and I implore my egbon and the esteemed laureate to oblige the young people who are saying that on the mandate given to Peter Obi to stand.”

“When those who are merchants in electoral larceny took their mandate with hot coal they cant close their hands because we are going to take it in the court.”
