President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday met behind closed doors with the Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Soyinka, who was accompanied by Yemi Ogunbiyi, spent about one hour at the State House.He declined to speak in details on the purpose of his visit to the President.
He dismissed the newsmen that laid ambush for him as he made his way out of the President’s office with the explanation that he discussed general and international issues with the President.
But he promised to address a press conference later.
Meanwhile, earlier today in a tweet from Buhari, he said “Professor Wole Soyinka visited this morning. We had quite a lot to talk about.”
