Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka has described President Muhammadu Buhari as being in a trance, advising him to jolt out of the trance in order to move Nigeria forward.

The respected playwright made the declaration while responding to a question on the three things he would tell the president should he meet him, The Punch reported.

“I will say Mr. President you are in a trance,” Soyinka told journalists on Tuesday.

Pressed on the form of trance the president was in, Soyinka responded: “I don’t know. So many unforced errors. Take for instance the suspended Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, Usman Yusuf, reinstated by the President.
“What is that about? What is going on?”
