Nobel Laureate Prof. Wole Soyinka, has said President Muhammadu Buhari is in a trance.
The revered playwright becomes the latest public figure to slate the president after former rulers Olusegun Obasanjo and Ibrahim Babangida last month expressed disappointment with the present administration.
Soyinka, while reacting to a question on the three things he would tell the President if he meets him, stated, “I will say Mr. President you are in a trance.”
He added that the sooner the President got out of the trance, the better for the nation, Punch writes.
Asked the form of trance the President was in, the Nobel laureate said, “I don’t know. So many unforced errors. Take for instance the suspended Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, Usman Yusuf, reinstated by the President.
“What is that about? What is going on?”
Earlier, Soyinka held a press conference in Lagos on the state of the nation titled ‘Nomads and Nation: Valentine card or valedictory rites.’
It remains to be seen if Buhari comes out of the ‘trance’ and pull the country out of the present morass.
