Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka has suggested that President Muhammadu Buhari is hard of hearing.
Soyinka was reacting to Buhari’s review of Open Grazing routes in some states of the nation.
Criticizing Buhari for ordering a review of the grazing routes despite public outcry, Soyinka said the President may be suffering from noise deafening.
Addressing a press conference in Lagos, Soyinka said: “It’s like there’s some delusion about this thing, a kind of mental delusion about this thing. What is it?
“Perhaps the sound, the noise of the wedding bells (Yusuf Buhari) has contributed to the possible impairment of the hearing of the president of this nation. Because he does not seem to hear anything.”
Soyinka wondered why Buhari was obsessed “about something which is being rejected, right, left and centre.”
“Virtually the whole nation is screaming we do not want any open cattle grazing whether they go by the name cattle routes or grazing reserves.
“Even the all-powerful and untouchable Miyetti Allah, patrons of the murderous Fulani herdsmen, have gone on record that ranching is it,” Soyinka said.
