The celebrated professor spoke exclusively to ARISE News and noted that citizens cannot depend on the government after its abysmal first term.
“We the citizens have to take a very good look at the huge gaps, the huge lacuna in governance in this nation and then take responsibility for our own survival.l,” he said.
Soyinka believes it is futile spending on the government “after its abysmal first term”.
“We talked about community policing Amotekun, it’s a recognition of the fact that the civic part of the entire national polity has got to wake up in its own, not just defence, but for its survival.”
