Nobel Laurette, Prof. Wole Soyinka met with President Muhammadu Buhari behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday.
He was accompanied on the visit by his long-time ally and former Managing Director of Daily Times Newspapers, Dr Yemi Ogunbiyi.
However, Soyinka declined to field questions from State House correspondents on the details of his mission to the State House.
“Wait, wait, wait, I didn’t come here to see you people, ah.
“I came to discuss one or two things. I came to talk about few things; national matters; international matters, general matters, that’s all.
“But right now, please I will just like to get away,’’ he said.
Soyinka assured that he would be holding a press conference in a week’s time on the issues discussed with President Buhari.
