Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka yesterday, Monday, November 23, showed his dissatisfaction over pupils who wear school uniforms that depict their religion in Nigeria.
Talking at the inauguration of a N750m school named after him which was built by the Osun State Government in Ejigbo, Soyinka warned against dividing the pupils along religious lines by allowing them wear uniforms that typified their religious affiliations. He went further to point out that the feeling of holier than thou was one of the factors that brought about the abduction of the Chibok girls by Boko Haram insurgents.
Soyinka also lambasted the federal government for not being able to rescue the kidnapped Chibok girls since they were abducted by Boko Haram. He described it as a “shame” on the federal government.
