Some Nigerians have taken to Twitter to react to the statement released by Noble Laureate, Woke Soyinka where he criticised the Pyrates Confraternity for throwing a jibe at the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu.

VANTAGE NEWS reports that the National Association of Seadogs (Pyrates) where seen in a viral video using a song to condemn Tinubu for choosing to run for presidency when he should be taking care of his health because if his age.

Reacting to the move, Soyinka said it’s distasteful for the group to condemn a man because of his age, stating that old age is not something to be condemned.

“I have listened to the lyrics of the chant by the National Association of Seadogs (the Pyrates Confraternity) intently and I am frankly appalled. I find it distasteful. I belong to a culture where we do not mock physical afflictions or disabilities,” Soyinka said.
