Buhari’s Government Has Failed – Wole Soyinka by iwaeda: 9:50pm On Jul 14, 2019
Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, says the Federal Government has failed, adding that the government is not capable of solving Nigeria’s problems.

Soyinka lamented the violence caused by herdsmen, the indiscriminate grazing of cattle and the destruction of farmlands



He, therefore, recommended that a National Conference be convened, adding that the Muhammadu Buhari-led government can only make an impact by thinking beyond partisan politics.

Soyinka said this while playing host to some students on his 85th birthday celebration, Channels Television reports.

The playwright said, “The problems of this nation are beyond the solution that can be offered by this government, that’s the first admission; they have to stop thinking in partisan government.

“There has always been a major problem with successive governments. It’s easier on the state level to say that a particular state is definitely doing better than another state. But the central government has failed, that’s my view in the main.

“There is a minimal level which any government which has been elected to power must achieve to be considered a true representative of the people.”

He called for a national summit to address some of the socio-economic and political challenges facing the country, saying that the current challenges are beyond the capacity of the government in power.

Soyinka said more was expected from the government in tackling issues that affect the populace.

He also called for a national conference where all these challenges could be addressed for the good of all, making reference to security threats posed by cattle herders.



The Nobel Laureate added, “Look at what’s happening today with the cattle all over the place, that’s a security issue which should never have reached this level.

“That singular act has resulted in hundreds of people being killed, farms were taken over; it has wiped away a lot of the positive achievements of the government.”

“They need to confront this nation as a habitation of human beings where very serious issues like economy, security, health, even threats of secession come up every day and convoke at the same time, a national conference, what I call an Indaba across all section which we will all meet and debate everything, including the economy of this nation.”

Throughout all of history good has always overcome evil and so it is today and will remain in the future.
those who think there should be no prefrence or choices in life think everyone must submit to the total will of allah "slam your heads on the ground or loose them" are in for a very rude surprise

your leader issa a rag head and failure to him is still very faraway as it consigns the task at hand.

"...........the Federal Government has failed,...the government is not capable of solving Nigeria’s problems...
See how he said it instead of calling it what it's-"The Buhari govt have failed" If it is Jonathan now Kongi will be running his mouth anyhow.Guess you helped entrenched the evil because of parochial sentiments?

So when are you going to lead another group of "Occupy Nigeria" protesters against this evil regime?

Buhari don’t care about grammar he just want to achieve Saudi’s command “ Go and conquer, you have been paid and you shall deliver for which you have been paid to achieve, you must kill all the infidels if that’s what it will take to establish a new nation of deceit and pedophiles”

Did prof Soyinka vote? I thought he ran out of the country before the election? So he doesn't have the moral right to criticise PMB.

Na now you dey know say Buhari government don fail? Before the election, we kept on telling you guys that Buhari is incompetent but you people took it tribal. Just because you don't want to be on the same side with the Igbos. Chai! Igbos don suffer for this country, I swear. I just want this Nigeria to stop existing. I need a country where love thrives. Where everyone has a say. Where graduates would see reason for going to school.

All hands need to be on deck fast...

-Young ones no longer see reason for school..
-Unemployment is at its highest ebb..
-While our only source of income slowly goes extinct..
-Patience is no longer a virtue in Nigeria..
-Political offices are now looting avenues..
-Crime has overtaking the day..
-While Anger and strife is crowned king..
-Teenagers now organize kidnap rings..
-While we harbour the 4th most deadliest terrorists
-Villages and homes are massacred and razed down..
-We are the world's poverty capital..
-And our debt is above 50% of our total reserve with nothing tangible to show..
