While reacting to the very sad story which billionaire Tonye Cole had earlier narrated on social media, FFK wrote;

''The young man that told 80 year old Nobel Laureate Prof. Wole Soyinka to get up, move to the aisle and vacate the window seat for him on a commercial flight is disrespecful and irreverant.We know it is his right but it is not every right that u insist on exercising.#wolesoyinka''

Truth is, it might be his right, but when men old enough to be your father BEG you to let go of a thing and you refuse, it only shows how you deal with YOUR OWN parents at home. After all those men were not begging you for them to seat, but for a man old enough to be your FATHER’S FATHER (had to put that father’s father like that)… very annoying.

Oh shut up this man. What is the problem with age and respect in Nigeria? Why didn't your Whole Soyinka requested for window seat at point of booking? Between some window seats comes with extra cost. The young man wanted the seat because of his health.  He has done nothing erong

The original version of this story has been shared here earlier today,so we already know what transpired. Mr. Soyinka boarded first and sat on the young mans designated seat,then the young man came in and saw him seated,then told him to stand up from his seat. I wonder how Mr. Soyinka will be complaining about the situation in Nigeria and the bad leadership when he is one that sets bad examples too. There is something that is called orderliness,the old man brought the insult on himself by failing to do what is right which is to sit on his own seat,if he wanted the window side,then he should have waited for all to board and then beg the young man to allow him use his seat rather than take it by force. I wont bother if it were to be me,but the young man should not also be bedeviled by claiming his right. Now,everyone wants to attack the young man and no one seems to point out the real fault,which is from the Prof himself. Let us call a spade a spade if we really want things to change for the better in that country. and come to think of it,who prof Soyinka epp sef?
