Olaokun Soyinka penned an open letter in reaction to the window seat saga involving his father, Professor Wole Soyinka and another plane passenger.
The incident was narrated online by business executive and APC governorship candidate in the last Rivers state election, Tonye Cole. The open letter was addressed to Tonye Cole.
Dr Soyinka penned an open letter thanking the business executive for ”standing up for his father, and for respect”. He went on to express his “irritation” at “social media warriors”.
Dr Soyinka also added that the passenger who owned the passenger seat had a right to demand his seat but the elder is “entitled to some deference or respect.”
He went on to criticize the youths of today for their lack of respect for elders, adding that “those who like to see an elder given his due deference are entirely within their rights to judge the young man (window seat owner).”
Dr Olaokun Soyinka is the son of Nobel Laureate prize winner, Professor Wole Soyinka.
