Wole Soyinka fulfills promise to tear US ‘green card’ reportedly
Wole Soyinka, today the 1st day of December, 2016 revealed that he has fulfilled his pledge to tear his US residency green card if Donald Trump wins the presidential election.
“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.”
“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,”
