Soyinka stated this during an interview with Plus TV African on Thursday.
He made the comment while responding to a question regarding the open letter written to President Buhari by Colonel Umar Dangiwa (rtd), a former military administrator of Kaduna state
Soyinka said: “Well, my first reaction was thank goodness people like Umar who has a tendency to hit the nail hard and go to the point factually without self-interest.
“It struck me when I saw this and I was appalled. But I said to myself why should I be surprised that such an atrocity has been going on.
“I think those who are responsible for this criminal lopsidedness should be punished. It is not sufficient just to discuss it. It’s criminal.
“I have said this before. I don’t believe there is really anybody in charge in Aso Rock. I’m sorry to say this. I’ve been studying the trend over the past year and a half and I believe this president is not in charge of this nation, in so many aspects and directions. I’m convinced he’s not really and totally with it.
“It’s so serious. It is not the fact alone, we know the history of this. We know what it has caused the nation and we know it isn’t over yet. And you say are launching an enquiry. That’s not enough. This man is not in charge.”
