‘You Are In A Trance’, Soyinka Blasts Buhari



'...You Are In A Trance', Soyinka Blasts Buhari

Following the question put to Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka when he was asked by journalists in Lagos today on what he would tell President Muhammadu Buhari if he meets him face to face, he said, “Mr President, I think you are in a trance.”

“I will say to him, Mr President, I think you are under a trance.”

“Too many things are happening now which made me say that. I think he is under a trance.”

He added that the sooner the President gets out of the trance, the better for the nation.

When asked to explain the form of trance which he thinks the President was in, the Nobel laureate said he does not know but this is can be attributed to the ‘errors’ by the Buhari-led administration.

Soyinka said, “I don’t know. So many unforced errors. Take for instance the reinstatement of the fellow who was sacked from NHIS (suspended Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Usman Yusuf). He was reinstated by the President.”

“What is that about? What is going on? It is a certain kind of alienation from reality is going on.”
