"The adjective used by individuals or groups to qualify any statement Prof. Soyinka makes is a product of their assessment, judgment and, or understanding of the subject matter and how it sits with them. Criticism on the other hand creates room for review, analysis and improvement. Every Seadog is groomed not only to welcome criticism, but to also dish it out with forthrightness and candour. It ensures the anti-stagnation principle of NAS. We all must recognise that constructive criticism always helps us to stretch our imagination and find better ways of doing things, make better decisions, and become more accountable. Soyinka has always ensured his criticisms are measured and well thought out. His views are personal to him and if NAS has views about any situation or circumstance affecting our national life, which is usually the case, NAS has official structures and mechanisms to articulate and propagate such views. This we have always done through our website and social media platforms; like we have done in the over 23 press releases we have published in the course of this year, position paper to the National Conference, etc."
