Asked during a meeting with Arise TV on the off chance that he imagines that Nigeria can proceed as one, Soyinka said, “Not on the off chance that it proceeds with along these lines. Not on the off chance that it neglects to decentralize.
“Again this isn’t Wole Soyinka saying this. Officers have said it. Everyone has said; ex-heads of state have said it; examiners have said; financial analysts have said it and that is what is befalling individuals in the city; that is the reason they’re moving; that is the reason they’re illustrating; that is the reason they’re challenging even dangers from the police; from the public authority ‘on the off chance that you illustrate, you’re double crossers, we’ll manage you… we’ll address you in language which you’ll comprehend’.
“It doesn’t work with anyone any more. Since the country is on a self destruction slide and individuals feel that they don’t merit that sort of self-destructive dive and they reserve the option to say ‘sorry o, I’m escaping this plane before it plunges.”
