Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, says President Muhammadu Buhari is not in charge of the country.
Soyinka, who stated this on Thursday during an interview with PlusTV Africa, said the inadequacies of the present administration further demonstrates the problem with the country’s extant political structure.
The renowned writer also condemned the alleged silence of the president to a recent open letter written by a retired colonel and former military administrator of Kaduna, Umar Dangiwa, wherein he tackled him for appointing people from his section of the country into office.
His words: “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.
“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.”
