“It’s like there’s some delusion about this thing, a kind of mental delusion about this thing. What is it?” Soyinka requested, as he addressed a press convention in Lagos on Friday.

The Nobel laureate added that Buhari may additionally be affected by deafening noise from his son’s wedding ceremony bells final weekend.

“Perhaps the sound, the noise of the wedding bells (Yusuf Buhari) has contributed to the possible impairment of the hearing of the president of this nation. Because he does not seem to hear anything,” the professor of linguistics lampooned.

Citing a collection of teams of folks that have kicked in opposition to Mr Buhari’s transfer, Mr Soyinka questioned why the president was obsessed “about something which is being rejected, right, left and centre.”

Virtually the entire nation is screaming we don’t want any open cattle grazing whether or not they go by the identify cattle routes or grazing reserves. Even the omnipotent and untouchable Miyetti Allah, patrons of the murderous Fulani herdsmen, have gone on file that ranching is it,” Soyinka asserted.

In April and July, Southern Governors’ Forum at their conferences in Asaba and Lagos respectively introduced a ban on open grazing within the area, setting a September 1 deadline for full implementation.

 Soyinka alleged that there was maybe one other agenda behind Buhari’s organising of a committee to recuperate previous grazing routes throughout the nation.

“And when we think of all that discussions, all that debates is settled in rational terms, along comes a new version of RUGA with the president insisting on sending his agents out to go and map out and recover the old grazing reserves when governments and people, experts, agronomists, businesspeople are saying this is the business and should be conducted in this particular way.” Why is the president obsessed about one thing that’s being rejected by the folks? The activist queried.

“The obsession is on such a level that even people who consider themselves rational, like myself, begin to wonder whether this is really all about cattle. Perhaps there are other kinds of agenda that we don’t know about.”
