Wole Soynika believes that young people will lead change in Nigeria


Lagos, Nigeria

Wole Soyinka, Nigeria’s Nobel Prize-winning author, sees his country’s many problems – misrule politicians, systemic corruption, violent extremists and gang kidnappings – yet he doesn’t despair.

At 87, he says Nigeria’s youth may have the energy and know-how to get the troubled country back on track.

It is up to the new generation to “decide whether they want to continue to ride the same rickety train to a track” or chart a new course, Mr. Soyinka told The Associated Press.
