Soyinka: Why is Buhari hiding his state of health?


President Muhammadu Buhari has been called upon to make his state of health public to Nigerians since the President is a public property.

Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka making the call on Friday in Lagos asked, “Why is the president hiding his state of health? He’s supposed to understand he’s public property, me I’m still private property, that’s why I’m not in Aso Rock,” Soyinka, a professor of Comparative Literature, said. 

“Once you are in Aso Rock, or you occupy a similar position, you have a responsibility to come out frankly to your citizens.

“Guarding your state of health like Donald Trump is guarding his tax returns is not what we expect from a Nigerian president.

“Let him address the nation and stop all these speculations which creates unnecessary political manipulations among other things,” he said.
