Why Are We Talking About Second Term? – Wole Soyinka


Wole Soyinka High School Statue in Osun StateProf. Wole Soyinka, has said he will not discuss or have anything to do with any individual on talks concerning Muhammadu Buhari’s possible second term.

“Why are we talking about second term for heaven’s sake? I don’t understand this. I refuse to be part of that discussion. I absolutely refuse to be part of the discussion,’’ Soyinka reportedly said.

“Take simple security for instance. The average citizen feels less secure now than he did a few years ago; that is evident. When people talk about state police, there are reasons for it. When they talk about bringing policing right down to the community level, they know what they are talking about.

This is also part and parcel of reconstruction or reconfiguration.

“The economy, there is a big question about it right now. Fortunately, everybody admits that we went through a very bad patch. Right now, it is a question of have we come out of it or not or there is no question at all.

“The past few years have been years of real internal economic disaster for the average citizen,” he said.
