Common Sense is Dead in Nigeria – Soyinka
6 December 2016 Uncategorized
Nigerian Nobel laureate and revered playwright, Prof. Wole Soyinka, says he will hold a private funeral on January 20 when United States President-elect, Donald Trump, is inaugurated as President.
Soyinka, stated this on Monday in Lagos explaining that the funeral is not to mourn with the citizens of the US over their choice of president but to mourn the death of common sense in Nigeria.
According to him, the nation’s common sense is totally lost and has attracted embarrassment.
A report in the Dailypost quotes Soyinka as saying, “Why do Nigerians wail louder than the bereaved?
“I am embarrassed to occupy the same nation space as some imbeciles and morons. I am planning my Wolexit, which could be internal or external.”
He also quipped that Nigerians do not have the right to query his personal decision to tear his US green card.
