Watch Wole Soyinka discuss Boko Haram with CNN’s Amanpour (Video)


Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka discussed the Boko Haram insurgency on the CNN interview show, Amanpour.

He said, “President Jonathan should have asked for it (assistance) from the very beginning. I don’t believe in false pride. The history of the movement to which Boko Haram belongs is one which is a menace to the entire world.

“This is a government which is not only in denial mentally but is in denial of certain obvious steps to take. It is the missing humanity that the problem will go away; an attitude that occurs in the subconscious.

“But, one thing is certain, the President and his government cannot sleep easily after what has happened to Nigeria.  The era of denial and indifference has ended. The situation has now gone beyond the President and the solution must be internationalised.”
