Buhari & Jonathan are ‘problematic’ candidates, says Soyinka

               

In an interview with BBC on Monday February 16, Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, described the two main candidates in the March 28 presidential election, president Goodluck Jonathan of the ruling party PDP and Buhari of APC as problematic candidates. He tells BBc; “There is a huge albatross hanging [around] the necks of the two main candidates. I can understand the dilemma which many voters have. One contender is troubled by the present, the other by the past.”
On the abducted from Chibok girls, he says;

“What happened was a clear failure of leadership – a slow reaction, an inadequate reaction and response,”
On APC presidential candidate, Soyinka stress;
“Buhari and his partner, the late Gen. Tunde Idiagbon, after (former military head of state) Sani Abacha, I think they represented the most brutal face of military dictatorship. There is no question about that,” Soyinka said.
