Buhari is not in charge of Aso Rock – Wole Soyinka

Wole Soyinka, Nobel laureate, says he doesn’t believe that President Muhammadu Buhari is in charge of the country.

Speaking on Thursday during an interview, the renowned writer said the answer to the nation’s problem is decentralisation, adding that there’s a need for the people to be historically conscious.

Soyinka was reacting to an open letter written by Umar Dangiwa, retired colonel and former military administrator of Kaduna, to Buhari over the president’s knack for appointing people from his section of the country into office.

“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.

“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. You say you are launching an enquiry. That’s not enough. This man is not in charge.”
