Nobel Laureate and social commentator, Professor Wole Soyinka, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari’s new Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, of being a top member of the late Head of State, Sani Abacha, inner caucus.
In an interview with Plus TV Africa, Soyinka maintained that Ibrahim Gambari will not make any difference in the presidency.
He said: “I know Gambari, he’s part of the structure.
“Gambari was an Abacha man which means that he has the Abacha status quo mentality. Let’s put it that way. Gambari is not going to make any difference here, he is just going to make sure that he’s looking after his portfolio over there. So why are we looking in that direction for salvation in this country?
“I didn’t want to join in that debate because I want him to enjoy his stay. But I know Gambari very, very well.”
