January 9, 2016 – Soyinka Gives Kudos To Buhari For Exposing Corrupt Politicians Who Looted Nigeria Dry During GEJ Regime
The Nobel Laureate made the remark today as Lai Mohammed paid him a visit at home in Lagos.
Soyinka said the level of corruption exposed under Buhari’s administration showed that Nigeria is really working hard to rid self of corruption.
“We have not had a case where it had been alleged and increasingly proven that money supposed to be spent on defending ourselves, our nation, our neighbourhood, has been shared among individuals.
“We never had experience where we were in a state of critical emergency where children are being kidnapped under our noses.
“Never had there been in a situation where we are helpless and our soldiers are sent to the front to defend our very existence and we are not backing them up with conduct that shows integrity and commitment.
“Because of these reasons, corruption is really desperate and has chosen to fight back, but I am confident that corruption will be resolved’’ .
