Wole Soyinka reportedly fulfills promise to tear US 'green card' over Donald Trump's election win

Nobel prize-winning author Wole Soyinka today revealed that he has fulfilled his pledge to throw away his US residency green card if Donald Trump won the presidential election. (Read here)
"I have already done it, I have disengaged from the United States. I have done what I said I would do," Soyinka told AFP on the sidelines of an education conference at the University of Johannesburg. "I had a horror of what is to come with Trump... I threw away the (green) card, and I have relocated, and I'm back to where I have always been."

However, Soyinka said he would not discourage others from applying for a green card. "It's useful in many ways. I wouldn't for one single moment discourage any Nigerians or anybody from acquiring a green card... but I have had enough of it," he said.

Posted somewhere before but was adviced to take it here.

I have decided to bring these issue disturbing
me here cos I believe I will get solution here .
I have a very good friend who's so close to me,we just finished talking now and I could not find solution to her problem because and it's bothering me.
She's been married for 7 yrs with 3 kids ,though she was warned seriously not to marry this man,there was revelations from church,even the mans late wife brother went to her to tell her how this man frustrated his sister (his late wife) untill she was frustrated to leave the house before she later died,she still went ahead to marry this man,it has been from one issue to the other from battery her while she was pregnant and so on but luckily that has stopped.
The major issue now is this man does not know if he has a family,for this lady to feed with her 3 kids with the youngest 6months is a problem ,most times they go to bed hungry ,she works in a local government where she earns 29,000 which doesn't go anywhere for her and her kids ,she managed to open a shop last 2 years where she sells foodstuffs,but the shop is empty now cos she took a loan from lapo and a microfinance Bank to operate the shop ,because she was servicing the loan every month ,now the shop is empty completely as she took a break to have her baby ,now she seriously needs to stock that shop cos her salary can not feed her and her kids bcos the man does not care for them always complaining he doesn't have money so she wants to struggle to take care of herself.She has complained several times to the husband's brother concerning this,and it always result to big fight for her that why will she report him to his brothers and most times ends up insulting the brothers so non of them wants to involve themselves anymore,she can't leave the house cos shd has no cent to her name,her salary can not get her apartment and her other siblings are struggling with life,so that's why she wants to struggle hard on her own when she
gets her feet shd will then leave the mans house.
Her thought now is to go back to microfinance Bank to take
loan so she can stock her shop ,I'm advising her not to because of the interest rate ,she might fall into debt again..I'm really confused because that' was my advise to her and that still did not solve the issue Pls my libers how else can she come out of this ? And this is her email Id and she needs your supports too financially... Folufolu556@yahoo.com, please be kind with your words to her.

He can't reapply if there was proof that he actually threw it away. That will be a slap to the USCIS. Except ofcourse Hillary helps to get it.

Our most eminent Professor, you shouldn't have done this, your action cannot change or impact Trump or American politics. You simply cried louder than the bereaved and inconvenienced yourself unecessarily.

sylvester martins said...

please my people let us not bother much about this recent revelation but i think soyinka would have learnt how to tell lies being the father of literature in Africa at his age he ought to have planned his coming home,but he decided to create enemity before coming home,Tell me one special thing th a you man did to you that warrant given literal insult to him,if you want to go back to your father land just go now because i will still celebrate that hero in 2018.you are political and your attempt to buy vote for your woman have fail,i love surprise imergency of triumph.

This explains the fact that academic knowledge to excellent level is not enough to explain spiritual truths. Hilary Clinton and her satanic and diabolical agenda was rejected by God. In tearing your green card you have demonstrated that there is no fool like an old fool. Do you know how many professors and neuro scientists voted for trump? Hope the hopeless politicians you vote for in Nigeria will do better than trump.American embassy must deny this Occult entry into the USA when illness comes knocking again. What you did makes no sense. I am also burning your books.

Wole Soyinka is over 80 years old. He really doesnt need the American green card anymore at his age. So, all of you seeking for evidence here should take a chill pill and receive some sense

What reasonable people do in an election is to vote for whom they want to see handling things, and not to talk like idiots when other millions have their own views.
