Professor Wole Soyinka has termed ‘unfortunate’ President Muhammadu Buhari’s charge to Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation to begin recovering lands for Fulani herdsmen.
The Nobel Laureate who said this on Arise TV on Monday, labelled as insensitive, the comments by the President, noting that the best line of action would have been to find ways to address the agitations being raised by the masses.
Soyinka said, “Also, the language used by Buhari in responding to agitation for secession is very unfortunate. Any sensitive leader must understand and respond to the reasons behind those agitations, not to start to threaten, bully or intimidate people.”
