Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, has said President Muhammadu Buhari is not in charge of the country.
Soyinka who spoke during an interview on PlusTv Africa on Thursday said after studying the trend of events in the past one year and half that he is convinced that no one is in charge of the country.
“I have said this before. I don’t believe there is really anybody in charge in Aso Rock. I’m sorry to say this. I’ve been studying the trend over the past year and a half and I believe this president is not in charge of this nation, in so many aspects and directions. I’m convinced he’s not really and totally with it.
“It’s so serious. It is not the fact alone, we know the history of this. We know what it has caused the nation and we know it isn’t over yet. And you say are launching an enquiry. That’s not enough. This man is not in charge” he said.
Reacting to the recent letter by a former military administrator of Kaduna state, Umar Dangiwa to the President on lopsidedness in appointments, the Nobel laureate described the manner of appointments as criminal adding that it doesn’t bode well for the country.
“First of all, I was appalled by the silence that followed this revelation. I think those who are responsible for this criminal lopsidedness should be punished. It is not sufficient just to discuss it. It’s criminal,” Soyinka said.
