Following Donald Trump’s shocking win in the US presidential elections, Nigeria’s professor, Wole Soyinka has come under a blast.
Many Nigerians on social media have called on Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka, to tear his green card. This is following the vow he made should Donald Trump become the president of the United States.
It will be recalled that Soyinka made the vow last week while giving a speech to students of Oxford University, England.
According to the literary doyen, “If in the unlikely event he does win, the first thing he’ll do is to say [that] all green-card holders must reapply to come back into the US. Well, I’m not waiting for that.”
“The moment they announce his victory, I will cut my green card myself and start packing up,” said Soyinka, who is scholar-in-residence at New York University’s Institute of African American Affairs.
Twitter went agog following the results as some Nigerians reminded Soyinka of his vow, and others dragging him to the mud for ‘just opening his mouth to talk.’
