Buhari Is Not The Right President For Nigeria- Wole Soyinka by timsTNA: 1:58pm On Dec 02, 2016
Nigerian literary icon, Wole Soyinka, has stated that he’s not surprised President Muhammadu Buhari is fast losing popularity among Nigerians 18 months into his tenure.

“There’s nothing surprising to me about his losing popularity, it should be expected,” he said in Johannesburg.

“People wanted change, that word was not just a slogan, it was a promise,” he said. “Fulfilling political promises when you take over the reins of power and you have to clean up a lot of mess, it’s not easy,”

“I was not particularly enamoured of the idea of a military person continuing — for heaven’s sake, it’s been too long,” he said.

“I feel very passionate that it’s about time that we eliminated the last vestiges of military control, of military representation. It’s as if there are no brains outside the military.”

Soyinka was a fierce critic of Buhari’s earlier term as head of state after taking power in a coup in 1983.

Sorry, no more wailers form.


Anyway saying Buhari's not the right man for president is an understatement, Bubu is not qualified to run a local government.
The dullard is more positioned to rear Cows.

Well, I guess the saying that: what an old Man see while seating down a boy cannot see even if he climbs an iroko tree" is null and void as regards this man's position. As an old and literary icon he could not see the future. With historical facts, young guys like us kicked against "CHANGE" but they kept chanting "Sai Baba" in ignorance.

He is now singing "it wasn't me" just like obj his fellow colleague in deception is doing after playing a key role in deceiving most gullible Nigerians to vote for the headless one as president.

This is what happens when deceptive old men reaches the peak of shameless.

I can forgive an uneducated bricklayer who erroneously voted the dullard thinking he had a magic wand. Soyinka is not just a renowned Professor but a Nobel laureate as well. Should have known better, he was a grown man and must have witnessed Buhari's last outing, yet he supported the dullard.

Academic knowledge is not the same thing as wisdom that is why he is a Nobel Laureate which is a recognition for his literary prowess but that didn't automatically conferred wisdom on him.

If there was an award for wisdom, he wouldn't even be a nominee.
