Professor Wole Soyinka the International Nobel laureate winner has cautioned Nigerians to take Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra,(IPOB) seriously.
“There is no point deceiving ourselves because the young man Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has proof to the whole world that he has some facts and figures to prove his claims.”
“But, I urge the President to come out and counter those allegations which are detrimental to Nigeria dismantling, which will be against the wish of most of us that are living and we fought for the unity of this country.
“It is very pathetic and appalling to know that someone is claiming so many things which look real and truthful but people are only laughing at those allegations which is detrimental to the unity of the country but you have to look at it from the other way round based on the things happening and all that he has been saying you could see that there is some fact and element of truth in his outburst that Nigeria has no president.
“Where is the Vice President of Nigeria? Who supposed to be the next if the president is not in a position to handle the affairs of the country.
“He is nowhere to be found I am not afraid of going to prison because I have been there on several occasions even during the military times so this is democracy and must be practiced the way it should be we are not in a military regime.” the professor concludes.
