The Central Government controlled by President Muhammadu has failed, says Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka. Soyinka, while playing host to 85 pupils selected across the six-geopolitical zones to celebrate his birthday said;

“The problems of this nation are beyond the solution that can be offered by this government, that’s the first admission; they have to stop thinking in partisan government.

“There has always been a major problem with successive governments. It’s easier at the state level to say that a particular state is definitely doing better than another state. But the central government has failed, that’s my view. “There is a minimal level which any government, which has been elected to power, must achieve to be considered a true representative of the people.

“Look at what’s happening today with cattle all over the place, that’s a security issue, which should never have reached this level. That singular act has resulted in hundreds of people being killed, farms were taken over; it has wiped away a lot of the positive achievements of the government.

“They need to confront this nation as a habitation of human beings where very serious issues like economy, security, health, even threats of secession come up every day and convoke at the same time, a national conference, what I call an Indaba, across all section, which we will all meet and debate everything, including the economy of this nation.” He said
