A post by an instagram user identified as Tonye Patrick Cole who boarded plane with Professor Wole Soyinka on a Business Class, narrates the story of a young passenger who asked the old Noble Laureate Prize Winner to vacate from his seat.

According to Mr Tonye Patrick Cole He classified it as lack of home training and moral decadency for a young man to have told an elderly man to stand up because he is occupying his position, nevertheless, the narrator made it known that the young actually paid for the seat.

While some were scolding and throwing lashes on the young man for his act, some still have a different opinion, according to them, the young man, has the right to claim his right and not act based on sentiment or attached feelings.

@tonyepatrickcole  -  @professorwolesoyinka #celebrategreatness #relationshipsmatter met one of the greatest Nigerians walking the earth today and as with other times, he was genteel, witty, forthright and humble. My smile gives me away as he permitted the picture whereas he would have preferred to get back to his newspapers. Then we boarded the flight and after assisting him with his bags, he took the window seat and promptly started reading again.
A few minutes later this young man, baseball cap, t-shirt to show his muscled chest and tattooed biceps boards the plane and tells Prof he is on his seat (which he was). Those of us including the cabin crew tried to reason with Bobo Fine to let the old man be but the chap refused. He insisted Prof should vacate his window seat, which the old man quietly did for his original aisle seat next to him.
I couldn’t understand how we got to this point where we no longer have respect for elders, even if are so ignorant of the great global personalities in our midst. Is it too much to ask that an elderly man be allowed to remain in a seat allotted to you in the same business class cabin and the same row?
