President Muhammadu Buhari, is currently in a trance, as state of hypnotism and lack of self-consciousness, Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, has said.

He told reporters on Monday night that he said this would be one of the issues he would raise with the President if he had the opportunity of meeting him.

“I will say Mr. President you are in a trance.”

He added that the sooner the President got out of the trance, the better for the nation.

Asked the form of trance the President was in, the Nobel laureate said, “I don’t know. So many unforced errors. Take for instance the suspended Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, Usman Yusuf, reinstated by the President. What is that about? What is going on?”

Earlier, at the meeting with reporters, in Lagos on the state of the nation titled ‘Nomads and Nation: Valentine card or valedictory rites.’ Soyinka, regretted the dangerous rise in the clashes between herdsmen and farmers, a phenomenon he admitted was not new in the country.

He gave his perspective for stemming the tide to what he called a new breed of Boko Haram, as “organized resistance, saying: “The important thing is the consciousness of a need for organised resistance against the incursion of cows.

“In Ogun State, we have formed a sort of informal organisation called OSHA, Ogun State Hunters Association and we intend to collaborate with similar movements, the police and the military.

“I wish to commend the governors in the various organisation which are now beginning to understand that they must start policing themselves. If we want to take the phenomenon seriously, it will be to ensure that anytime they see an armed herdsman, they report to the nearest police station. If by a certain time that group of armed herdsmen are not disarmed, then this organisation will move and disarm them.”

The Nobel laureate, who expressed unhappiness about the “body language of President Muhammadu Buhari and his government, he condemned the proposed cattle colony, it said was the solution, arguing that instead of colonies, owners of cows should establish ranches..
