Nobel laureate Professor Wole Soyinka has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to reveal his health status to Nigerians.
Soyinka, who said this while speaking to journalists in Lagos on Friday, said the current speculations about the president’s health is “unnecessary.”
“Why is the president hiding his state of health? He’s supposed to understand he’s public property, me I’m still private property, that’s why I’m not in Aso Rock.

“Once you are in Aso Rock, or you occupy a similar position, you have a responsibility to come out frankly to your citizens.
“Guarding your state of health like Donald Trump is guarding his tax returns is not what we expect from a Nigerian president.
“Let him address the nation and stop all these speculations which creates unnecessary political manipulations among other things.”
