''Stop Confusing Nigerians'' Soyinka Tells Buhari During Conferment Of GCFR Title On Abiola In Abuja

When we heard that Professor Wole Soyinka was invited to witness the GCFR title on late MKO Abiola,we began to wonder if Soyinka of all intellects would honor the invitation.

Yes,he did,but he spoke his mind at the event and spoke words that make Buhari feel cold and broke down in heart.

Take a look at Soyinka's mockery to Buhari's action:

“I would like to make a request Mr President that you stop creating confusion in the minds of Nigerians. Stop confusing Nigerians.  It is not possible to honor MKO Abiola in one breathe and and then admire his tormentor in another breath. Loyalty is all very well but that loyalty can become perverse if that loyalty is retained to an individual who if he were alive today, would be before the international court of crimes against humanity, one who broke the laws of Nigeria, committed crimes humanity. It is confusing if professional loyalty is carried so far. 
We had a private conversation sometime ago and remember that one of the things I mentioned to you was this, You are fighting corruption, how come it that a notorious corrupt ruler is honored by one of the most important avenues in the FCT. The answer you gave to me was not too satisfactory but I let it pass. Today perhaps is also a day for us to inaugurate our hall of shame to future generations''.
If President Mohammadu Buhari had known, would he have invited Professor Wole Soyinka to be with him on that faithful and historical day?
