Soyinka, speaking on Tuesday during the Special National Honours Investiture at the Presidential Villa event, Abuja, advised Buhari to either choose one, Abacha or MKO Abiola
He was one of the speakers at the occasion where MKO Abiola, the adjudged winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election and others were honoured.
Soyinka said, “As we inaugurate hall of fame, we should inaugurate hall of shame on another hand.
”Hall of Shame should be in line with Hall of Honours. Many unsung heroes and heroines. The torture, dehumanizing of Nigerians were horrendous.
“I will like to appeal to you to stop confusing Nigerians. It is not possible to honor MKO Abiola in one breadth and praise his tormentor in another breadth.”
