Soyinka Begins Campaign Against Identify Abuse, Fake News.


By Eniola Daniel
Nobel Laurette, Prof Wole Soyinka has kicked off what seems to be a campaign against Identify Abuse and Yellow Journalism, aka Fake News, especially on social media, Soyinka who made the announcement in Victoria Island, at the of Never Quite Insider, a book written by  Managing Director of Promasidor Nigeria Ltd, Keith Richards OBE, was furious at a blog that put up a forty quotes purportedly authoured by him. 

  Soyinka who was the book reviewer said, out of the 40 quotes credited to him, 27 were false.
Soyinka who said he will start his speech on any occasion with some house cleaning, that's to speak.
From here on, not just now, but it began some time ago. Before any event, before I play my role with any public event, there will always be this preliminary, the denunciation of something. The goals must be by social media.
They found the origin of fake news.
I don't care whether it's a wedding, a funeral, child, maybe in conferences, wedding ceremony church service, funeral, whatever it is, any opportunity which I have, I'm going to denounce preferably details of the latest atrocities committed by this thing, the much abuse media because it's really a positive medium. So I shouldn't really denigrate it.
The abuse which is being inflicted what is called social network, social media on blogs, Facebook, Twitter, in competition with the president of United States in that department, the issue of identity abuse has become an issue for every individual, every organization, every community, I think we have reached a point we must declare war on this phenomenon, which is global.
  I was in Chandigarh, India and the hospitality extended to the degree by arriving in my bedroom and finally, the district a decorated the bed with slivers with a quote spelled out for me, I was very touched, but it was not my quotation, I couldn't sleep with, it was one of the really embarrassing ones. It was a sentiment with I happen to share in this particular instance.
A few days ago, I got a report from people passing through the international airport.
There was supposedly quote of mine on a billboard by a reputable bank, in all sincerity in fact, the bank in interested with on Africa, so I wrote to them, with my enforcement team to stand by, but they were very gentle, they apologise and took it down immediately. In fact, they got the quote from a reliable source, SB blog, this blog apparently, have been operating for years, and it claims to be dedicated to education to research, job provision, among others.
 Out of the 40 quotes, 27 were false, for some of them, I could never possibly author in my existence. One was disrespectful of the female gender, and this has been sitting on the internet, and people will be using this kind of thing as a reliable source of information to the extent, a bank used it.
So, we are at war, and I don't care how long how much time it takes, I don't care how organization think it doesn't matter but for some of us, it does matter if it's a life and death struggle that is exactly what it is, for the notion especially one like assembles a writer consider his word very, very carefully, it is obscene and unacceptable. A bunch of people can sit down and actually fabricate 40 quotes from me of which 27 are totally false.
But this is going to be with me from here on, and I invite all those who've been similarly to join me, in this warfare.
