Wole Soyinka is one of my

Wole Soyinka is one of my favorite playwrights, whose works inspired so many people for the past decades. I truly admire him for his constant anti corruption battles. Unfortunately my dish network Phoenix doesn't support this channel, but I'm sure I'll find a recording somewhere. Such a guest can only bring grace in such a terrible political scene.

You, my friend, are a

You, my friend, are a standard idiot. You're so ignorant, you should be outlawed. You want to know about Soyinka's achievements? Google is your friend.

I can't believe how incensed I am at your comment! Anyways, you no fit talk pass as you Sabi. And obviously, you don't know anything.

Prof. Wole Soyinka

happy to hear this, please

happy to hear this, please ask him tough questions like why doesn't he say anythn about tinubu and ACN government. why didn't he say anythn about the toll or the 2.7bn ramp also nothing was said about tinubus offshore accts. is it because they have giving his son appointment he cannot speak up when things are wrong, The manipulated LGA elections in lagos we heard nothn from him or falana. Also should falana be defending a criminal like tinubu? please ask falana as human right activist is this right? is it his salary at mobil or when he was governor that he can afford private jet, buy 5 new planes for the nation airline and buy the liscence for 32million dollars, the nation newspaper, hitech, tvc with the head office is the old lasu off campus building, hitv, oando, alphabet to name a few? please sahara reporters be fair and ask them.

They should look beyond oil subsidy issues.

Thanks SR.

We should look beyond oil subsidy issues:

a) Goodluck be made to appreciate that Nigerians are demanding that corruption issue is tackled head on.

b) The 'oil subsidy' tricksters that have milked Nigeria of over N1 trillion Naira in 2011 alone; a sum over and above what Obasanjo spent/year, are not being prosecuted.

c) Dozens of findings on commissions, White papers on corruption gathering dust on GEJ table, SHOULD BE PUBLISHED.

d) Our governors have become 'Corruption Incorporated' and too powerful, their excesses must be checked.

e) Goodluck, be more forceful against the plundering of our commonwealth.

f) Most importantly, he MUST declare his Assets as required by the constitution or RISK IMPEACHEMENT!

g) GEJ's constant vaccillation and poorly thought-through policy is detrimental


Grey haired fool. Impostor. Charlatan

"Wole Soyinka To Appear On Sahara TV, January 14th"

And ...?

Who gives a damn anyway about the kind of pompous, verbose and grandiloquent pseudo-intellectual which Soyinka represents?

Soyinka is irrelevant- a grey haired charlatan dining on past glories which I cannot even recognise or identify. What has he ever done other than write indigestible crap with lots of "big grammar" to show how clever he is to his ignorant admirers?

Verily, verily, I say unto thee: in the country of the blind, the one eyed man is king.


Thanks Omoyele Sowore for your efforts in this struggle.

To ensure full participation of everyone. Due to recent change in the time zone by 1 hour, the Nigerian time that will correspond accurately with 8.00a.m.-12.00p.m. U.S.A. (E.S.T.) will be from 2.00p.m. to 6.00p.m. instead of

Keep up the good work of keeping everyone in the loop.

Honourable Oluwaseyi Ogunyinka.

Why do you want an ape in the studio?

good idea

That will be very nice if †ђξ nobel lauret can feature in †ђξ programme as said & i know nigerians will be happy τ̲̅ǿ hear his views about †ђξ situation.


When will Saharareporters, feature olusegun obasanjo, the CHIMPANZEE? The sexual PREDATOR, who does not distinguish between his daughters, sons, daughters-inlaw, sons-inlaw, sister, child, old and Animals should be invited by Saharareporters too.

where to watch

Want to be viewer of the programme.
