Buhari Has Failed – Wole Soyinka Blows Hot


Buhari Has Failed – Wole Soyinka Blows Hot. Nobel laureate , Wole Soyinka , has insisted that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration has failed.

According to him , the problems confronting Nigeria were beyond Buhari.

Soyinka stated this while playing host to students who paid him a visit on his 85th birthday.

The literary icon made it clear that while state governments differ in success rates , “central government has failed”.

“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.

“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 , Soyinka said.
