Wole Soyinka, a Nobel Laureate, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari’s Federal Government of failing to address Nigeria’s challenges.
Soyinka claimed that Nigeria was rapidly disintegrating because the current government lacked solutions to the country’s problems.
He stated this at a press conference held yesterday in Freedom Park, Lagos State.
The Nobel Laureate warned Nigerians not to look to the government for solutions to the country’s problems.
“The problem here is that the government does not have a holistic understanding of the problems in Nigeria,” Soyinka says. If we are looking to this government for a solution, we are in trouble.
“We’re in a shambles. This country is in shambles. It’s disintegrating right in front of our eyes. This government is in disarray.”
He stated that a Sovereign National Conference is the solution to Nigeria’s problems.
Soyinka believes that Nigeria’s various ethnic groups should band together and chart a course toward mutual coexistence.
