'I will not destroy my U.S. green card yet' - Wole Soyinka

Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, says he will not be tearing his green card yet. According to him, everyone should wait until Donald Trump is inaugurated as the 45th President of the US on January 20th. Nigerians on social media yesterday called on him to fulfill his promise to destroy his green card if Trump is elected President. He pledged to do this when he gave a seminar at Oxford University two weeks ago.

However in an interview with The Newsweek yesterday, Soyinka who lectures in some Universities in the US, said Nigerians should wait until when Trump assumes office to see him take a decision.


"Why don’t we wait until Trump actually takes office? I am just going about my normal commitments, but definitely not getting into any more commitments. Let’s put it that way for now,” he said. He expressed fears that Trumps victory will affect the US government's support to Nigeria in the fight against Boko Haram “One should expect that level of collaboration to diminish. Trump’s mentality is one of, ‘What are we doing there? What business do we have over there? I foresee Trump dismissing that kind of expectation offhand and closing in, shrinking, becoming smaller in terms of [the U.S.’s] presence in other parts of the world,” he said.

Woke Soyinka should focus on making Nigeria great again and leave America to handle their problems by themselves. We have Buhari and his damaging policies and recession to deal with and he's ranting about a country that has already been fixed and life is good for citizens.

Oga Soyinka, it is a treasonable felony to destroy the property of the United States Government and the Green card is one of those. You can only go through the due process to give up your US residential permit (Green Card). Destroy your GREEN CARD and face felony charges.

This man has become so shameless. Does old age affect the reasoning of these old Nigeria elites? Prof, we know you can't tear your green card because you're afraid of the evil scam change government back home. Mofos

People complain too much. For them there must be something to criticize. Now he is saying Trump wouldn't want much of US presence in other countries. I thought people were complaining of US too much presence in other countries.
