Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, chose the occasion of the commissioning of a mega school named after him in the state of Osun to lash out Monday at President Muhammadu Buhari and his team over the non-rescue of 219 Chibok schoolgirls, almost six months since Buhari’s inauguration.
“It is a shame that the nation cannot account for over 200 girls in Chibok. I sympathise with the religious policy of governments in school; children must not be brought up feeling that religion inhibits knowledge.
“In schools, we need not distinguish our children, the fatalistic religious holiness and the holier-than-thou attitude must be reduced among our pupils,” he said.
Professor Soyinka, ever frank, said said the school was an an “emphatic rejection of what Boko Haram insurgents preach”.
