The Nobel laureate stated this during the BBC’s Hardtalk program anchored by Zainab Badawi.

According to Mr Soyinka, President Buhari failed to include his “slow response” in dealing with the terror of marauding Fulani herdsmen across Nigeria.

Mr Soyinka insisted that Mr Buhari was repeating the mistakes of his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan, who failed to deal with the Boko Haram menace.

He said; “Obasanjo contributed to the emergence of Boko Haram by not preventing the first governor in one of the northern states from establishing a “theocratic state”.

The Nobel Laureate said the president failed to act because he was “compromised,” by his ambitions to continue in office beyond the second term limit.
