Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka yesterday described the inability of the federal government to account for the over 200 missing Chibok girls abducted by Boko Haram as a shame.
According to DailyPost, Soyinka made this statement after a mega-school in Osun state was named after him by Governor Rauf Aregbesola.
He also said the school was an an “emphatic rejection of what Boko Haram insurgents preach”.
“It is a shame that the nation cannot account for over 200 girls in Chibok. I sympathise with the religious policy of governments in school; children must not be brought up feeling that religion inhibits knowledge.
“In schools, we need not distinguish our children, the fatalistic religious holiness and the holier-than-thou attitude must be reduced among our pupils.”
