An oversight or intentional decision? According to a recent investigation made by Entertainment 24/7, books by renowned writer and Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka are absent on the shelves of Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo’s Presidential library, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Whereas books of other famous Nigerian authors/writers like Chimamanda Adichie, Chinua Achebe are conspicuously displayed.
A staff of the library who pleaded anonymity said since the ex President never liked the writer as shown in his write-ups, interviews and many more his books cannot grace the shelf, another staff said, “his books were not stocked hence cannot be displayed by the Library, we do not go out to stock books here with the intention of ignoring any writer/author. It must have been an oversight”. His name is also absent in the library’s hall of fame.
