Prof.Wole Soyinka- I've Destroyed My US Green Card


Nobel prize-winner Prof. Wole Soyinka speaking on Thursday in South Africa revealed that he has destroyed his U.S Green Card.

Shortly before the U.S election, prof Soyinka had vowed to tear his U.S residency card to protest against the Republican presidential candidate and president -elect Donald Trump.

“I have already done it, I have disengaged from the United States. I have done what I said I would do,” the 82-year-old said in South Africa.
 
“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”.

 At the same time he 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.
