Nobel Laureate , Dr. Wole Soyinka has vowed to thrown his weight to the agitation for the creation of Yoruba nation.
Soyinka, the Nigerian playwright, novelist, poet, and essayist, revealed this in a 40 seconds video interview that was published by the British Broadcasting Corporation News, on Sunday.
He also advised yoruba people not to wait for the issue to be centrally handled, saying “we are going to become, if not already, slaves.”
He said, “What do they expect of us now, now that this war is in our doorstep, of course, it has got to be a civil mobilisation, and if we keep waiting, for this to be centrally handled, then well, we are going to become, if not already, slaves.
“That’s for me personally, it’s intolerable, it’s not an acceptable condition, and whatever it takes, I am ready to contribute in anyway.”
