Soyinka tells Bukhari to address the country
Nobel laureate Professor Wole Soyinka called on President Muhammad Bukhari to appeal to the nation and declare that he does not support the criminal activities of some pastors in parts of Nigeria.
Soyinka called in an interview with BBC News Pidgin.
He urged Bukhari to state categorically that: “Yes, I (the president) am the patron of the livestock breeders association, I am engaged in livestock activities, and this is an activity that I do in a business environment. People occupy their land.
“I warn everyone in the food supply chain and livestock breeders that anyone caught unlawfully seizing or trespassing on someone else’s property should be held accountable, and the military and other security forces should support citizens’ efforts to drive them out.”
Soyinka said the country could enter a phase of serial confrontations “which can become more and more violent and develop – I hate that word – they can turn into a civil war, very chaotic and chaotic. This is my biggest fear. “
He supported civil mobilization to resolve the pastoral crisis, as “he is now at the gates of the southwest region.”
He also warned that “by waiting for the problem to be resolved by the federal government, we will all, if not already, become slaves in our land. This is unacceptable and unacceptable for me. “
