President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday held a closed-door meeting with Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka.

Soyinka arrived at the Presidential Villa at about 11:00am and went straight to the President’s office.

After the meeting, the Professor of Comparative Literature told State House correspondents that he had come to see the President on some national, international and general matters.



    When asked further questions, he promised to hold a press conference in a few days.

    The literary icon had last month voiced his support for President Buhari’s fight against corruption, with a call for the imprisonment of corrupt politicians to serve as deterrent to others.

    Professor Soyinka made the call while addressing journalists at the 7th edition of Wole Soyinka International Cultural Exchange Programme, held in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

    He was of the opinion that the anti-corruption campaign should be more inclusive and that all other professionals should be part of the battle.
