Wole Soyinka says he will tear up his green card if Trump wins

Wole Soyinka, the Nobel literature laureate who currently lives in the US and works as a scholar-in-residence at New York University’s Institute of African American Affairs told students at Oxford University that if Donald Trump is elected president of the United States next week, he will leave the country.
While giving the seminar to the college students, he said:
“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."

You could campaign for buhari to win and now you are tearing your green card if trump wins. The question is between trump and buhari who is better. Stupid man. American is more important to you than Nigeria. You should have said this between buhari and GEJ

Eddy Ogbunambala said...

Ok good for him

austin uzoma said...

His brother OBJ did the same thing when GEJ won the party nomination and today we all can see where we are now in a mess of our own mistake. Today the same old fools think otherwise. May God help us.

Rubbish talk from someone who ought to be more involved in nigerian affairs,instead of involving yourself in Nigerian issues,you have pathetically joined the bandwagon of uninformed fellows who have been brainwashed by the Hilary Clinton scam, trump might be all things,but he would never be as devilish as Hilary.

I never knew Wole Soyinka was this stupid

Haliburton scandal said...

Americans are voting for him massively just as most you voted massively for this tribalist illiterate called Buhari, so start from your Nigerian Pasport before your green card

Chijioke. said...

You can as well commit suicide. Light and darkness has nothing in common. All Clinton's supporters be prepared Cos by God's grace Trump will Win.

Anonymous said...

With all due respect Sir, Trump will win and I will help you tear your Amerian passport.
Pleeeeeeeease!

Anonymous said...

I laugh not only because of soyinka's statement but at the manner in which Nigerians have hijacked the American elections. They even know know more about the elections than most Americans. The truth is whether trump wins it hilary wins your opinions don't matter to the US what matters to them is how to maintain their position as a super power so all this una analysis no get where e dey una. Face naija leave America alone.

benito said...

Good for you. Maybe America doesn't need your kind

Okoneyo Godwin said...

who cares?, who fuckin cares, his own country is burning, and he,s dia blabbing about other peoples countries,you are d least of donald trump headeache.

Anonymous said...

I wonder who cares, buhari that he supported, how far, people are going hungry, what have u done. Nothing, and here talking about trump. If u like commit suicide , we don't care, advise buhari that u supported to fix the bloody economy and leave Americans to focus on themselves. Bloody Nigerian men. How I hate them all

Anonymous said...

Sir, please go ahead. We the Americans, we don't care if you do. You are not allowed to vote anyway so it really doesn't matter what you do with your green card.

Joseph Owo said...

Please do, why should anybody cares. If he becomes a president that means American people wants him; what is your business

sholetoga said...

Soyinka, please start the tearing now because America doesn't know of your existence. Some people fool themselves to the point of paranoid, America ain't gonna miss you......clueless and visionless Buhari that you and your APC foist on us is killing people with hardship and suffering here. What have you done about it. You've been on dumb mode but you can put you mouth in America affair. Old Man taa

Anonymous said...

Excuse me sir, what are you waiting for? you worth nothing to Americans. I have a better option. kindly hug transformer or visit ISIS in Iraq with a bottle of beer and prostitute. The illiterate you voted for has destroyed the once vibrant economy of Nigeria.

Anonymous said...

Most Igbos on this blog are just insulting him because he did not support the looting of Jonathan's administration. But God will bless my noble professor Wole Soyinka because he stands for the truth which is very bitter for most of you little minded touts suffering and still supporting corrupt politicians. Fools

Goodluck Oguegbu said...

Calm down prof. Am optimistic that Trump is going nowhere... Though Clinton is losing voters on regular basis because of this mail scandal.Trumps presidency would be a very big issue for us all.

Ovieh Papa said...

HYPOCRITE !

This is a guy who worked for Babangida in a public office.
This is a guy who is a friend of Amaechi and Tinubu. A guy who helped launch Tinugu's book in Chicago.
This is a guy who paid a courtesy visit to Buhari
....

How are any of these people any better than Trump ?

Newshandle said...
