Wole Soyinka will destroy his green card and start packing if Trump wins
By Rita Chioma
Just like Comedian Basket Mouth did recently, Noble laureate, Wole Soyinka has revealed his plans if Republican candidate, Donald Trump wins the presidential elections in the US.
According to a report by The Guardian, Soyinya says he will “cut his green card and leave the United States.”
The report said Soyinka, a scholar-in-residence at New York University’s Institute of American Affairs, disclosed the plan in a speech to Oxford students.
He was quoted as saying, “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.”
The Nobel laureate also criticized Brexit, warning that there is a rise of “ultranationalism” and calling on young people to resist oppression.
His comments came less than three weeks after 70 Nobel laureates backed Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
