Feb 6, 2015 – Wole Soyinka Endorses Buhari, Urges Nigerians To Vote Out Jonathan On Feb 14

Kongi yesterday came after Jonathan during a conference that held at the freedom park in Lagos.

Prof Soyinka urges Nigerians to not vote for the continuation of Jonathan’s government because he is a total failure in leadership.

The Nobel Laureate says he has 66 reasons not to vote for Jonathan

“I will not vote and I will not encourage anyone to vote for the continuation of this government, simply because your colleagues numbering over two hundred were kidnapped, “ 

“And the government of this nation failed to show leadership. So anyone who says after that event that I will vote or cast my vote or encourage anyone to vote for this regime must be living in Sambisa forest,” Soyinka said, referring to a forest in Borno State where the Chibok girls are believed to be held by Boko Haram.

“There has been a failure of leadership. Our children whom you represent today have been betrayed ,” Soyinka said, adding that no appropriate action was taken to rescue them.

Soyinka said it took the Jonathan government ten days to even accept that the Chibok girls were missing.

“After that dereliction of duty, after that failure of leadership, after that betrayal for our future, for anyone to think or to put words in my mouth suggesting that I will vote or encourage anyone to vote for this regime is a travesty of intelligence,” – Soyinka told students at the 2015 edition of Vision of the Child (VOTC), a yearly programme inaugurated in 2012.

The professor also debunked his death rumour at the event.

      Back to you, Do you hear or know that some parents of the kidnapped girls has died of heart attack and depression due to their wards been kidnapped without no single traces to get them back? All of you talking against Prof Wole Soyinka in this forum are fools and bastards, Take Buhari’s issue apart, Jonathan has failed woefully, Nigeria as a country need other hands for proper CHANGE, Prof is not a baby, Prof is not a politician, Prof is not an NURTW member, So if somebody like Prof should give us vital reasons why Nigerians should vote wisely, We all need to emulate him rather to cast him out as Opposition.

    Thank you sir for your insight and words of wisdom to millions of suffering Nigerian people that have suffered greatly because of this failed president corruption, money laundering operations, imcompentence, mismanagement, economic hardship, setbacks and insecurity. Only those that are eating the national cake of corruption will endorse or campaign for a failure of six years. Any reasonable Nigerian citizen that are struggling every day to survive in Nigeria will reject Jonathan’s reelection bid. Any president who can not guarantee adequate security for his own people does not qualify for the highest position in the nation. Six wasted, bloody, and unproductive years of opportunist Zoologist President In Aso Rock Villa has yielded nothing but mass murder of innocent Nigerians, inflation, shattered educational system, leadership failure, abuse of power, corruption, looting of national treasury via some pastor’s private jets, and insecurity. Only a fool will expect a different results by doing the same things over and over again, Nigerian people should not allow this criminal and corrupt president and his ungodly allies to cajole us to vote for his failed records of six years. Nigeria is one of the richest nations on planet earth but we have the highest number of people living in abject poverty because of leadership failure and corruption at all levels of government. We must shun tribalism and religious intolerance in the upcoming election by voting for the right candidate with the experience, ideas, passionate, patriotic and competent president in person of General Mohammad Buari on February 14, 2015. Great Nigerian people, Is time for a change That will rescue our declining and sinking nation from president Jonathan’s disastrous agenda of six years.

      NA true. No room for a murderer who killed Owoh, Ogegengbe and Ojuolape in 1984 for a crime that did not carry the death penalty when they carried cocaine. Buhari killed the three young men because he wore army uniform and felt he had a right to overthrow a civilian elected president. I remember the terror then with Buhari and Idiagbon. I’m happy Idiagbon joined them a long time ago and became their houseboy. Buhari will NEVER preside over Nigeria. He can be president of Daura, his village. Nigeria has enough bruises and scars.

    Sorry, professor. This is personal. Your opinion is to Wole Soyinka alone. Every citizen has a right to vote who he/she prefers. Your suggestion does not count. Your reasons for preferring one candidate are reasons others vote the other. Therefore, February 14th is a day of decision.

    IS THIS CHANGE?

    Dear Nigerians, since the advent of the All Progressives Congress (APC) the major watchword has been ‘change’ but we shouldn’t forget that the APC was formed as a coalition of the CPC and AC. Now, what kind of change do they promise exactly?
    Perhaps change from the status quo as we know it. However is the APC capable of bringing about such change?

    Without a doubt, GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN administration has brought about progress in myriad sectors of the country: Agriculture, Financial empowerment for entrepreneurship, Transportation, Education etc.

    The major impediment to this government has been insecurity, arising from the insurgency plaguing parts of the North-East. It is pertinent to note that this insurgency was both fomented and groomed in the North, specifically in the regions under the governance of the then ANPP (Borno and Yobe). This has led to an undermining of all the efforts the GEJ administration has put in place to uplift the nation.

    Great Nigerian citizens should we then give our vote to the potential endangerment posed by the APC under the guise of ‘change’, or support a man who has literally transformed the nation and is ready to do more?
    Let’s support the continuity of transformation agenda of GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN.

    Most of you who are canvassing for the continuation of GEJ leadership are far from realism. Let me ask you folks, What do you think will become of this Country if Jonathan continue with his style of leadership for another extra four years? Bringing tribalism into present mess situation is like intricate the problem of common Nigerians. Jonathan has no charisma to lead this Country and its time for him to hand over baton to a candidate who has appealing quality of leadership and that is in Buhari. In 1984 when Buhari/Idiagbon came on board, we Nigeians saw and felt that enough substance to make a difference in him. As for those anti-GMB who constantly bringing the issue of three drug peddlers, Ogedegbe, Batholome Owo and Ojuolape who were killed during Buhari regime, well it is quite unfortunate that the trio were being caught up with the law at that time. The law enacted at that time clearly stated that anybody caught with transaction of control substance will be executed but they ignored it. Buhari did not single handed ratify that law but the Supreme Military Council did. That is one of those things that bring us back as a Nation because we don’t want to adhere to the rules of law. As for the upcoming election, Jonathan is going to lose significantly. If you do the math the Northern Votes and Southern Votes will give Buhari an edge. The most of GEJ votes will emanate from his Clan and few from South East that is why Jonathan kept going forth and back to get endorsement from IBB & Co.but it’s too late. I have said before and I will continue to say it again that having Jonathan as No.1 on the bench will continue to plunge this Country deep into recession and endangers our Nation’s Security.

    I tort dat, wt d absence of reasonabl commentor lk miss Red, diz site wll lack ppl wt wisdom, den came JOSHUA.

    Tnx 4 ur comments, well said. Its 2ru dat Jonathan failed us in some aspects but I tink we shld also undstnd dat dat is nt enof rzn 2 wnt him out just lk dat. He needs a 2nd chance.
    Nw, wat of oda areas in whc he did well? Bt one tin abt being a gud pers iz just lk being a goalkepper. Ppl wll alwyz remba d goals u conceeded n 4gt d ones u saved.

    Changes is d only permanent tin in lyf dat we knw bt even @ dat, buhari is nt d type of a man dat can bring dat abt.

    Buhari is d only individual decoratin d APC as a party. If u remove him 4rm d party, most of oda membas dat rally behind him in d party lacks sincere commitment n focus dat Nigeria require 2 bring abt d much clamoured CHANGE @ dis present tym.

    Anoda tin here is, d gr8st mistake Nigerian wld make is 2 gv dia manda8 2 an individual who does NOT blv in democracy himslf.
    #I rest my case#.
