Wole Soyinka at a public lecture on Sunday 22 April 2018, organised to mark the 80th posthumous birthday of the late human rights lawyer, Chief Gani Fawehinmi (SAN) said:
“For heaven’s sake, also grow up. Why do you need patronage? Why cannot a new order arise from this nation? Why can’t a new generation actually rise, throw us all out of the window and take control of their own lives by themselves?”
“Why do we keep recycling the same jaded, traitors and enemies of the people? Why do you need to go for blessing somewhere if you’ve made up your mind that it is time to take control of your own existence? Why the constant trooping?”
