President Buhari and Prof Soyinka

Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to make public his state of health to guide against further speculations.

Speaking with newsmen in Lagos on Friday, Prof Soyinka, reminded Mr. Buhari that the he is a public property by virtue of the position he occupies.

His words, “Once you are in Aso Rock, or you occupy a similar position, you have a responsibility to come out frankly to your citizens.

“Guarding your state of health like Donald Trump is guarding his tax returns is not what we expect from a Nigerian President.

“Let him address the nation and stop all these speculations which create unnecessary political manipulations among other things.

“Why is the President hiding his state of health? He’s supposed to understand he’s public property.

“Me I’m still a private property, that’s why I’m not in Aso Rock.

PROMPT NEWS ONLINE reports that since he returned from his extended medical vacation in the United Kingdom on March 10, President Buhari has not attended any public function.

He has only been sighted twice at the weekly Jumat prayers in the Presidential Villa.
