Buhari Should Declare His Health Status – Prof Soyinka

Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to disclose his state of health to Nigerians, stating that the President is a public property.

Soyinka at a forum in Lagos on Friday themed, ‘Sacred Cow’, described speculations surrounding the President’s true state of health as avoidable.

The Nobel laureate stated that Buhari’s failure to publicly disclose his state of health had increased political manipulations in the country.

Buhari was on Wednesday absent from the Federal Executive Council meeting and the Juma’at service at the mosque in the Presidential Villa on Friday.

Soyinka said, “Why is the President hiding his state of health? He’s supposed to understand he’s public property; me, I’m still private property, that’s why I’m not in Aso Rock.

“Once you are in Aso Rock, or you occupy a similar position, you have a responsibility to come out frankly to your citizens.

“Let him address the nation and stop all these speculations which create unnecessary political manipulations among other things.”

The renowned playwright also raised the alarm that his Abeokuta country home, Ogun State, had been invaded by herdsmen a second time and that the matter had been reported to the police.
