Featuring on BBC’s Hardtalk anchored by Zeinab Badawi, Soyinka explained that the former president failed to stop a Northern governor from creating what he termed “theocratic state”, hence he contributed to the emergence of the terror group.
He said; “Obasanjo contributed to the emergence of Boko Haram by not preventing the first governor in one of the northern states from establishing a “theocratic state”.
The outspoken literary icon said the president failed to act because he was “compromised,” by his ambitions to continue in office beyond the second term limit.
