The Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, has once again expressed doubt as to whether President Muhammadu Buhari is still in charge of Nigeria’s affairs.
Soyinka expressed his doubt while featuring in a programme on Arise TV recently. He insisted that if Buhari is really in charge of Nigeria, the country’s security situation would not have worsen to the level it is at present.
He said: “Buhari does not appreciate the situation, he doesn’t understand, I see no evidence that he understands how grave the situation is.
“I have said it again and again. I don’t believe Buhari is in charge because it is not possible in my view for a head of state, a commander-in-chief of the armed forces to say he is presiding over a nation and things get to this level.
“Something is critically wrong within the leadership of this nation and that is where we civilians must come in, we must pick up the slack for our own situation, for our own salvation.
“What happened to me in this incident is typical of what happened to millions in this country and we cannot just sit still and say we are relying on central help when obviously, it is not coming.”
