Soyinka Backs Obasanjos Criticism Of Buhari Says Nigeria Close To Extinction

Nobel Laureate Prof Wole Soyinka on Tuesday supported the criticism of former Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo against the Muhammadu Buhari government, saying the country is close to extinction.

“We are close to extinction as a viable comity of peoples, supposedly bound together under an equitable set of protocols of co-habitation, capable of producing its own means of existence, and devoid of a culture of sectarian privilege and will to dominate,” Soyinka said in a statement.

“I am notoriously no fan of Olusegun Obasanjo, General, twice former president and co-architect with other past leaders of the crumbling edifice that is still generously called Nigeria.”

Obasanjo, Nigeria’s president from 1999 to 2007 last week criticised the current government and claimed that Nigeria was slowly becoming a failed state and more divided under the Buhari.

The former president, a former ally of the Buhari, however, advised the government to unite the people, strengthen security and broker peace between communities and groups currently battling unrest.

But the Nigerian presidency described the former president as a ‘divider-in-chief’ and one that does not mean well for the government.

Presidential spokesman Garba Shehu in a statement said Obasanjo was only seeking self-gratification and attention but should not be taken serious.

However, Soyinka, said it was unfortunate that the government has not embraced the ‘truth’ that Nigeria was on an edge of total collapse.
