Soyinka lambasts Pres Buhari (see what he says)
Professor Wole Soyinka, a Nobel Laureate, has counseled President Muhammadu Buhari to cease projecting false confidence and speak like a leader who is ready to address the country’s difficulties.
On Monday, he delivered this advice during an appearance on Arise Television’s News Day.
According to Soyinka, the country’s problems can be solved if leaders take the appropriate moves.
Nigeria, according to Soyinka, is on the verge of collapse, and Buhari must do more than talk to put the country on the right track.
“First and foremost, he should begin speaking to people in the manner of a leader — a leader who is aware of the situation’s realities.
Then let us see what actions are taken,” he said.
“I’m sick of hearing statements like, ‘You’ll notice a difference in a few weeks.’
We’ve had enough of it. He needs to lay his cards on the table and gain people’s trust.
“He needs to quit projecting a false sense of assurance because that type of assurance is completely false.
It isn’t grounded in reality, and we need to see a quickening of steps to pull this country back from the brink.
“It is no longer a people’s problem; it is a leadership problem because the people have demonstrated their willingness to act. to save their own community.”
Soyinka further said that, despite their constitutional responsibilities, the national legislature and the 36 state governors are not accomplishing anything.
“NASS members are not doing enough.
If you look at the constitution closely, you’ll notice that they have certain authorities that they haven’t exercised,” he explained.
“They can compel this administration to act the way it should in certain areas, and that applies especially to governors Because the governors are too timid.”
