Soyinka Urges President Buhari To Establish Hall Of Shame For Corrupt Leaders
Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to consider establishing a Hall of Shame for those who have wronged the country, just as he puts up Hall of Fame for the nation’s heroes.
The nobel laureate said this at the investiture ceremony of the conferment of national honours of GCFR on Abiola, GCON on his running mate, Ambassador Babagana Kingibe and GCON on late Gani Fawehinmi, at the State House, Abuja.
Speaking further, he also admonished President Buhari to stop admiring and displaying loyalty to an unnamed individual whom he referred to late MKO Abiola’s “Tormentor-in-Chief.”
He wondered why President Buhari will continue to display loyalty to a man he described as “one of the worst dictators in the history of the country” and who should be having his days in court for crime against humanity.
Soyinka said that in a private meeting with Buhari, he had also raised concerns over how the President could be saying his administration was fighting corruption, whereas a major road in the Federal Capital Territory is named after a “corrupt former leader.”
He said he was not satisfied with the response he got from Buhari.
