Nigeria breaking up informally, stop taking us for a ride – Soyinka to govt

Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, has warned Nigerian leaders that the country is breaking informally.

Soyinka urged the government at all levels to desist from taking citizens as fools.

He spoke during The Punch 50th anniversary lecture, themed ‘Recovering the Narrative,’ on Thursday.

Soyinka charged the government to be close to the people.


According to Soyinka: “It’s about time leaders stopped taking us for a ride so that the government can come close to the people.


We don’t want the nation to break, the nation is breaking informally. Let nations die so that humanity may live. I don’t like to use the word restructuring.

Politicians understand the terms when they are not in office but turn to something else when they assume office.

It is the same thing with reconstruction, and it is time to look into it because it is not a slogan.”
