Soyinka blasts Jonathan for economic crisis

31 May 2016, 15:28

Abuja - Nobel laureate Prof Wole Soyinka has blamed immediate past administration of Goodluck Jonathan for the current economic crisis rocking the country, Nation reports. 

Soyinka who spoke at a public lecture on the theme: Politics, Culture and the New Africa in Johannesburg, South Africa, said it would take time for President Muhammadu Buhari to clear the rot he inherited from his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan.

He said: “This (Buhari) administration has inherited a heavy baggage. While I am critical in some aspects of the priority, I think that to clear up the mess left by previous administrations is going to take quite a while, especially in the economy sector. So, I don’t use words like optimism or pessimism; I’m just pragmatic. I look at what is on the ground and, of course, wherever I can intervene, I do both privately and publicly.”

A few weeks ago, according to News24, Soyinka criticized the presidency for its inability to stop the continual attacks of Fulani herdsmen.

According to him, the President Buhari-led administration was yet to come up with an articulate solution to tackle the menace.
