    Our dear prof was deceived by the media houses painting blue when actually it was red hence his declaration. But is it necessary. America belongs to the Americans. Nigeria belongs to Nigerians. Should l give a hoot if a Chadian residing in my country decides to leave because we decided to change our leader.

    What is he even waiting for? Is he an American? Though the mangrove Tree may stand long in the River but that does not make it a Crocodile.

    Your long term stay in the US is not a liecence to claim any nationality. Those who does not really need any special or green card to be called the American are the real indigenes.

    So, come back home, you dont even belong there in the first place.
    You voted for APC Change, why can‘t you stay back and lets enjoy the govt together? Why run away?

    I take a stroll…

    Professor Wole Soyinka does not need any advice. Let him do what he wants to do without attributing his decision to president elect (Donald Trump). Mr. Donald Trump cannot rule the country without any supports form both democrats and republicans in the two houses.
    Maybe Wole Soyinka is tired of staying in USA; this is the land of freedom where you can come and go as pleases, as long as you’re law abiding citizen. Wole Soyinka is an intellectual, he knows what to do to forfeit his staying in USA through his green card by either voluntarily surrender the card or he is out of USA for more than six months. America is the land of opportunity for any person in the world as long as that person is here legally.
    Please let us accept Mr. Donald Trump, the new elect president and give him the chance to do his duty as the next 45th president of United States of America.GOD bless America
