Soyinka: Why Buhari’s government cannot unite Nigeria


Prof. Wole Soyinka, a Nobel Laureate, has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s government is unable to unite Nigeria due to structural failure.

On Saturday, Soyinka announced this at a book reading and signing in Abuja for two of his books, titled “Trumpism in Academe” and “Chronicles of the Happiest People on Earth.”

He was responding to former Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, who asked if he could write a story that would inspire unity among the various tribes in the country.

In response, Soyinka claimed Nigeria had lost a key opportunity to unite.

“We had a critical moment and we lost that moment. The moment when this country could have come together.

“There has been more than one moment and we lost the moment. Will another one come? I don’t know. Right now I don’t see it under this government quite frankly.

“There is a failure, a systemic failure in present governance and I don’t know who can put it together,” Soyinka added.

Soyinka however insisted that Nigeria should remain one entity.
