Soyinka slams those claiming he installed Buhari as President in 2015

By Sodiq Adewale Chocomilo

Professor Wole Soyinka has slammed those claiming that he “installed” Muhammadu Buhari as Nigeria’s President in 2015.

This was made known by Soyinka in a pre-recorded interview aired on Channels Television on Monday August 22.

Soyinka said those claiming he installed Buhari are talking “rubbish.”

He said;

“When people talk about Wole Soyinka installing Buhari, they are talking rubbish; they don’t know what they are talking about. They are talking from ignorance. When I think of the governed themselves, I asked myself, ‘What am I doing among these people that they don’t understand that if somebody misrules, you have a right to tell people not to vote for him?’ And it is their business after that who they vote for but they have the option of spoiling their votes.

“So, when I hear Wole Soyinka was the one who installed Buhari and he should apologise to the nation, I say, ‘Your parents should apologise to the world for inflicting morons like you on the world.’”

The foremost playwright said the accumulation of negativity from the governing and the governed sometimes makes him stay away from commenting on governance.
