Jonathan Has No Excuse As A President- Wole Soyinka On Abducted Girls

Wole Soyinka this evening was on CNN where he spoke to Amanpour Over the kidnapped of the Chibok school girls and here is part of what he said;

“This is a government which is not only in denial mentally, but in denial about certain obvious steps to take.”
“It’s one of those rather child-like situations that if you shut your eyes, if you don’t exhibit the tactile evidence of the missing humanity here, that somehow the problem will go away.”

It is not just “a Nigerian problem. I’m calling for the international community, the United Nations – this is a problem. This is a global problem.
And a foothold is being very deeply entrenched in West Africa.” Soyinka said.

When Amanpour asked Soyinka if he believes Jonathan is in denial, Soyinka said;

“It’s not only he. It’s the advisers around him. It’s a certain section of the nation, some of whom enjoy for various reasons a nation in a state of chaos. They profit by it, and in fact some of them are guilty of provoking the situation.”

“The person who has no excuse is the president of the nation.”


He also referred to Shekau’s video as a “charade” and “gleeful obscenity.”

    1. Ofon, in addition....u forgot to mention that EL Rufai always gets a kick by every attack made by BH. He's always the first to tweet them and even makes subliminal remarks with sheepish smiles on his face when he criticises the govt. And oh, how can I forget the almighty Sanusi..the one only mentor el Rufai adores so much and has no fault in his eyes. All I know is that the insurgency trippled since Lamido was sacked. And no ...this is no cliché. Bastards.

    3. Whoa! OFON speak for urself mehn!! El-rufai even talks too much condemning these killings everyday. Buhari also came out after d 1st Nyaya blast to condemn d killings of BH and blamed FG 4 politicizing d situation. For all we know their sponsors could even be in (PDP). Stop making baseless conclusions.

    6. I am sure that BH sponsors are not those u all are looking at, it might even be PDP trying to destabilize d north in order to reduce their votes in 2015.
