Nobel laureate Prof. Wole Soyinka has said that he was sure that President Muhammadu Buhari is in charge of the country.
Soyinka spoke Thursday in an interview on PlusTv Africa,, pointing out that the answer to the nation’s problem was decentralisation.
Reacting to an open letter written to Buhari by the former Military Administrator of Kaduna State, Col Abubakar Dangiwa rUmar, rtd, over the president’s preference of Muslims and people from his section of the country in appointments Soyinka said,"“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 you are launching an enquiry. That’s not enough. This man is not in charge.”
