2023: I didn’t endorse any presidential aspirant – Soyinka The Informant247

Buhari is a failure – Wole Soyinka says on impeachment plot

Nigerian Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, on Tuesday, supported the six weeks ultimatum given to the President, Muhammadu Buhari, by some federal lawmakers to resolve the issue of terrorism or be impeached.

The African literary guru made this revelation in Abeokuta, Ogun State, during an interactive session organised to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Abeokuta Club.

He has condemned a situation in the country, where a failure, who has been in power for eight years, would “give us another failure for another eight years”.

In the session were a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana, the Registrar of the Joint Administration and Matriculation Board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, among others.

The theme was: “Good governance or mis-governance: The contract called democracy.”

The Informant247 recalls that Senators had issued threat president Buhari to impeach him over his inability to tackle insecurity in the country.

The Senate minority group has given president Buhari a six-week ultimatum to find solution to the insecurity in the country.

Soyinka, who was the moderator of the session, reaffirmed that the Nigerian leader should be removed because he had breached the contract of democracy.

Soyinka said, “Democracy indicates a contract, that is why the candidate puts on a manifesto. On the basis of that manifesto, the candidate is either accepted or rejected.

“Very often, the grounds for breach of contract, I think we all agree, is mis-governance and one of the ways of breaking this kind of contract we know even before the duration of a contract is known as impeachment.

“The reason we will go by some legislators to impeach the President who is the head of government. In fact, one cleric has gone even further. He believes that the impeachment should take place not in the legislative home, but in the bush with the kidnappers and he appealed to the kidnappers to quicken the process by impeaching the President and taking him away and some of his aides and one or two governors.

“Many of us in this country, including governors, including chairmen of local governments, what comprehension they have of this process called democracy, because what these governors are telling us is that after a failure has occupied a seat of government for eight years, that failure should give us another failure for another eight years.”
