According to Soyinka, Nigeria may not be able to celebrate another Democracy Day.

A Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has indicated that another Democracy Day may not be held unless Nigeria's governance system is decentralised. Soyinka said this in an interview with Arise News on Democracy Day, June 12th.

The Nobel Laureate decried the country's downfall and encouraged President Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) to listen to the issues that have led to protests. “And that's exactly what's going on in the streets right now. That is why they are protesting, despite threats from the administration and the police - If you show up, we'll do it; if you show up, we'll deal with you; we'll speak to you in a language you understand - it's no longer acceptable. Because, if a country is on the verge of suicide, those who believe they do not deserve such a suicidal descent have the right to say, "I'm getting off this plane before it nosedives," he explained.

When asked if Nigeria can remain united, Soyinka replied, "Not if it keeps on this way." If it doesn't decentralize, it won't work. Nigeria would not be able to stay together if it fails to decentralize, and by decentralize I mean as quickly as feasible, not just rhetorically. It is not Wole Soyinka who says this. It's been said by everyone: former leaders of state, legislators, experts, and economists, and we're getting weary of hearing it. “I am saying that this entire nation is on the verge of self-destruction, and I am not alone in saying that unless Buhari and his government listen and take action, we will not be celebrating another Democracy Day next year,” he said. “Take, for example, the Southern governors' position on open grazing; at least half of a nation says that under this democratic regime, we are saying on behalf of our people, we do not want open grazing any more, and then someone sits in Aso Rock
