Soyinka said this during an interview with Arise News which focused on the June 12 Democracy Day that was celebrated on Monday.The Novel Laureate lamented that the country is on a suicide slide, as he advised the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to listen and take action against the challenges which are causing people to demonstrate.
“And that is what’s happening to people in the streets. That’s why they are moving, that’s why they are demonstrating; that’s why they are defying even threats from the police and the government – If you demonstrate, we will do this, if you do this, we will deal with you, we will talk to you in language which you understand – it does not wash with anybody any longer. Because if a nation is on a suicide slide, the people who feel that they do not deserve that kind of suicidal plunge have a right to say they are getting off this plane before it nosedives,” he said.
When asked if Nigeria can continue as one, Soyinka responded, “Not if it continues this way. Not if it fails to decentralise. If Nigeria fails to decentralise, and I mean to decentralise as fast as possible, manifestly and not as rhetoric, then Nigeria cannot stay together. headtopics.comRead more: The Punch Newspapers »
