Something is Critically Fundamentally Wrong within Your Leadership Style, Soyinka Tells Buhari.
Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka, has berated President Muhammadu Buhari’s leadership style, saying the President did not understand the gravity of the situation in Nigeria.
Speaking on Arise TV in Lagos while reacting to the statement by the Nigeria Police that cows did not invade his home in Ogun State, Soyinka described the widespread herders’ clashes with their host communities as a direct reflection of leadership failure by the Buhari administration.
According to him, “I have said this before and I have to repeat this. Buhari does not appreciate the situation. I see no evidence that he understands how grave the situation is.
“I have said it again and again that I do not believe that he is in charge, because it is not possible, in my view, for a Head of State and 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.
“That is where we civilians must come in. We must pick up the slack for our own situation, our own salvation. That is why I resent becoming individualised. Wole Soyinka is just another individual, just like another farmer, another student.
“So, I want the people to understand this: what happened to me by this incident is just typical of what is happening to millions of people all over the country. We cannot just sit still and say we are reliant on central help when obviously it is not coming.”
