Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, has applauded President Muhammadu Buhari for his accomplishments in the anti-corruption fight.
Soyinka disclosed this as part of his assessment of the Buhari administration while featuring on Hard Talk, a BBC programme, monitored by The Cable.
“It’s no longer business as usual in Nigeria because we have bankers who are on trial; we have legislators who are on trial and we have former governors who are on trial,” Soyinka said.
“The moment they stepped out of office, they were grabbed by the anti-corruption agencies. On corruption, as far as I’m concerned, he scored a pass.
“We have this issue of corruption, and I frankly despise those who try to trivialise it in Nigeria simply because they don’t like the face of the man who is behind it or he has failed in other certain aspects.
