“Buhari is not in charge of this Nation” – Soyinka

Spread the love

Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka has made claims that the president is not in charge of the nation.

He said this during an interview on PlusTv Africa on Thursday.

He was reacting to an open letter written to the President by retired colonel and former Military Administrator of Kaduna, Umar Dangiwa where he accused Buhari of appointing only people from Northern Nigeria into office.

Dangiwa cited a few examples to back up his allegations and warned Buhari to stop ignoring Christians and those from Southern Nigeria.

In his reaction Soyinka said;
“I have said this before. I don’t believe there is really anybody in charge in Aso Rock. 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.
“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.”


  1. Buhari was never in charge since his rumoured death in 2017. And its a shame the old professor is realising it now. The rate the country is seeking for loan and the insecurity in the country, Buhari is not realy in charge

  2. Hypocrite professor. You carried a mock coffin to protest Jonathan government and now you’ve seen cluelessness on four legs you resort to arm chair critic, is that the way to salvage the suffering populace. One would expect you to carry real coffin of Buhari now that u know that he is not in charge you voted and elected him to office and when he is not performing you still reelected him. Now u suddenly realised that he is not in charge. Ok oga professor agreed he is not in charge, what next

  3. Wole please don’t meddle into Nigerian politics if you won’t give a clear cut definition of where you stand
    Please stop flipping sides
