Wole Soyinka: the Buharists can chill, Canvassing for second term is wrong

There is still much work in the garden...and the gardeners had better sit their ass down and work rather than be frolicking around.

There is no other person who can interpret this government better than the 'The Interpreter' author himself, Wole Soyinka, and he is here to tell the Buharists to slow down, the isaue of second term should be erased.

“Why are we talking about a second term for heaven’s sake, I don’t understand this. We have hardly gone half-way or barely gone half-way and people are already talking about positions. I refuse to be part of that discussion.” he said

"The Buhari administration is yet to deliver on all its promises. Nigerians feel more insecured now than they were a few years ago. “It is a large questions, there are areas, yawning gaps. Just take security, for instance, the average citizen feels less secure now than it did a few years ago, that is evident. When people talk about state police, there are reasons for that; when they talk about bringing policing right down to the community level, they know what they are talking about. This is part and parcel of reconfiguring or reconstruction. The economy, there is a big question on it right now; fortunately everybody admits that we went through a very bad patch. Right now, it’s a question of have we come out of it or not; if in fact there is no question about it, the past few years have been years of internal economic disasters for the average citizen, but it is a question of who laid the seed? When and where and how were the seeds laid for the agony this nation has gone through in the last few years?”

Talking about restructuring the nation, Nobel laureate winner is saying nope! Instead Nigerians only need the restructuring of the mind.
