Soyinka revealed his personal stance of refraining from commenting on the President’s performance until one year into his term during a courtesy visit to Tinubu, who is now in Lagos for the holidays.

He stressed that the one-year wait in offering observations gives President Tinubu enough time to make amends for any setbacks and effectively resolve any difficulties that may have developed during his tenure.

In his own words;

“Well, you know, you may have observed that when most heads of state assume office, I always leave them alone for approximately the first year…Because they require time.”

“I know they don’t start from scratch when they come in. They frequently begin considerably lower than ground zero and must make up for lost time.”

“As a result, I’m following the same principle this time.” When you visit me next year, ask the same question and pay attention to my response.”
