Soyinka mentioned: “With the turbulence that characterizes the yr 2020, and as actions lower, the local weather has grow to be disgusting and really unfavourable. I do not wish to look pessimistic, however this is without doubt one of the most pessimistic years I’ve recognized on this nation and it wasn’t simply due to COVID-19, no. Pure disasters occurred elsewhere, however how did you handle to take care of them?
“It was a calamity because of human neglect or because of evil actions when persons are below the management of different beings that I worry most Nigerians are in, it is as if you do not know the place the blow would come from. This isn’t how a nation must be and it isn’t how residents ought to exist.
“The state of affairs has reached some extent the place you are unsure the place you are going and the place you are going to find yourself. As I mentioned earlier than, you do not consider, in lots of circumstances, that somebody is in cost. This, certainly, is a harmful situation for any nation. So I am afraid it hasn’t been an excellent yr for me typically. “
