“Mr President, I think you are in a trance.”

This was the reaction of Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, when he was asked by journalists in Lagos on Tuesday, what he would tell President Muhammadu Buhari if he meets him face to face.

“I will say to him, Mr President, I think you are under a trance.”

“Too many things are happening now which made me say that. I think he is under a trance,” Soyinka said.

He added that the sooner the President gets out of the trance, the better for the nation.

When asked to explain the form of trance which he thinks the President was in, the Nobel laureate said he does not know but this is can be attributed to the ‘errors’ by the Buhari-led administration.

“I don’t know. So many unforced errors. Take for instance the reinstatement of the fellow who was sacked from NHIS (suspended Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Usman Yusuf). He was reinstated by the President.

“What is that about? What is going on? It is a certain kind of alienation from reality is going on,” Soyinka said.

Professor Soyinka earlier told journalists during the interview that the phenomenon of attacks by armed herdsmen needs organised resistance by Nigerians. He further described the armed herdsmen as a new breed of Boko Haram and internal colonialists. (Channels TV)
