Noble Laureate and elder statesman, Wole Soyinka, said he will not criticize President Bola Tinubu’s administration until it is a year old.
The playwright said this when he paid a Christmas visit to the president on Sunday.
He explained that he usually gives heads of state a year to assess their productivity and would not do otherwise to President Tinubu.
He added that the one-year delay gives the President enough time to “make up” for lost grounds.
He said, “Well, you know, something you may have noticed about me is that most heads of state when they take office, I always leave them alone for about the first year…Because they need time.
“I know when they come in, they don’t start from ground zero. They often start even lower than ground zero and they have to make up.
“So, I’m adopting the same principle this time. When you see me next year, ask the same question again and listen to my answer.”
