Leah Sharibu: Wole Soyinka Pays Tribute by joshchisimdi: 5:25pm On May 14
Wole Soyinka who spoke at the prestigious Georgetown University in Washington, United States, paid a special tribute to Leah Sharibu, the Dapchi Christian schoolgirl who is still being held captive by Boko Haram. Soyinka in his tribute to Leah Sharibu, compared her to late South African iconic human rights champion and president, Nelson Mandela.

He said at the event;
“We must celebrate the exception who said ‘no’ “as it reminded me of Mandela who refused conditional release". Reciting the ode, “Mandela comes to Leah”, the renowned playwright clarified: “No”, she said, “Faith is not of compulsion. Her torch undimmed in the den of zealots.”

The Nobel laureate also shut down claims made by a Georgetown professor, who alleged that poverty and desperation were behind the Boko Haram insurgency.

Did I just read he delivered a lecture in United States? I thought it was once speculated that he destroyed his US passport.

To the subject matter, what stops the Lucifer ruling Nigeria from negotiating the release of this girl as in the case of the Kanu drug addict that was arrested with a sachet of tramadol in Saudi Arabia

Stop displaying your ignorant everywhere. Go and read about terrorists abduction and the resilience of their victim. Leah case is one of among many

I hope Leah's testimony will reset the Nobel Laureate's brain and make him retrace his steps to the Christian faith of his father.

Wole Soyinka would be a great loser if he closes his eyes in death without Jesus.

She deserves all the tributes she can get. She indeed has a resolve like that if Mandela. Not many would stand their ground like she has done

I pray and hope she gets released soon
