Nobel laureate Prof. Wole Soyinka has flayed President Muhammadu Buhari for adoring former dictator, late Gen. Sani Abacha while honouring Chief M.K.O Abiola at the same time.

Prof. Soyinka spoke at the Presidential Villa during the conferment of posthumous award of Grand Commander of the Federal Republic (GCFR) on the presumed winner of the June 12 presidential election, the Late Moshood Kashimawo Abiola

“Stop confusing Nigerians. In one breath you extol Abacha, in another breath you honour MKO. How can you extol Abacha who if he were alive today would be in the ICC (International Criminal Court),” Soyinka said during his speech.

Soyinka then admitted that he was “knocked out of his throat” by the apology tendered by Mr Buhari for the June 12 atrocities of Nigerian past dictators.

The president also awarded Abiola’s running mate, Baba Gana Kingibe and the late human rights lawyer, the Late Gani Fawehinmi, with Grand Commander Order of the Nigeria (GCON).

The regime of the self-styled military president, General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, annulled the June 12, 1993 presidential election widely adjudged freest and fairest in the nation’s history.

And last Wednesday, June 6, Buhari declared June 12 as National Public Holiday to celebrate the country’s democracy.
