TBT: Who Remembers The Tribute Prof Wole Soyinka Wrote For Late Yar'Adua.


Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, in his tribute, wrote,

“What passes for the Nigerian nation is nothing more than a tragic arena, and Yar‘Adua is only the latest tragic figure.



The vampires, including those within his own family, turned him into a mere inert resource for their diabolical schemes. They have a reckoning with their conscience, assuming they know what the word means. One can only hope that, while mouthing sanctimonious platitudes such as ‘Power belongs to God,’ they have now learned that the politics of Do-or-Die cannot guarantee who does and who dies. They must stop playing God. I pray for the repose of the soul of their latest, much abused innocent victim."

Now that's how you writes when you've not been taking or giving bribes or stealing public funds.
