Talking About Buhari, Not Good For My Sanity – Prof. Wole Soyinka



Nigerian Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has stated that one must imagine that the regime of the President, Muhammadu Buhari, does not exist, for the sake of sanity.

During a recent interview with Kaftan TV, Soyinka also described the new Lagos-Abeokuta-Ibadan standard gauge train as marvellous and long overdue.

Speaking further about the new train, the Nobel Laureate said he would not like to talk about Buhari’s government because he imagined the regime doesn’t exist.

When asked whether the new train was a plus to Buhari’s regime, he said:


“I don’t want to talk about Muhammadu Buhari’s administration. I think it is best for my sanity just to avoid that overall question. I can take bits and pieces of Nigeria’s present predicament but I think for one’s sense of balance, one must forget the existence of the Buhari administration.”

The playwright said for years Nigeria had seen the roads turn to a death trap while rail transport had been neglected.

He said on two occasions he had spent over six hours on the road from Lagos to Abeokuta. Follow us on Instagram @sofovilla | Follow us on Twitter @sofovilla | Like our page on Facebook via @sofovillamedia
