Tear your green card – Nigerians tell Wole Soyinka

Published

on

Nigerians on social media have called on Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, to tear his green card, following the vow he made, should U.S Republican candidate Donald Trump win the presidential elections.

According to Soyinka who made the vow last week, “If in the unlikely event he (Trump) does win, the first thing he’ll do is to say 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.
