December 1, 2016 – Wole Soyinka Throws Away US Green Card, Relocates To Nigeria Over Donald Trump’s Presidency “I Have Had Enough”

Nigerian Nobel Laureate Professor Wole Soyinka who promised to tear his American Green card on the 20th of January 2017 (Donald Trump’s inauguration day) seems to be running out of patience.

At an education conference that held at the University of Johannesburg in South Africa, the Octogenarian told reporters that he threw away his US Green card when he relocated to Nigeria last month.

His words:

The famous writer was said to have recently completed a term as scholar-in-residence at New York University’s Institute of African American Affairs before pulling out abruptly over Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s victory and his threat on immigrants.

    America doesn’t care whether or not you live there, with due respect, Sir. They operate in a democracy and the people have made their choice. We should emulate their respect of peaceful transition. The loser concedes, congratulates the winner and life continues. No murdering of political opponents, kidnapping, human rituals in the twisted belief it would enhance their chances to win and other atrocities synonymous with elections in jungles like Nigeria (pardon my use of word). Americans have moved on. They never asked anyone to come live in their country, anyway. It is by choice. Hope you enjoy the endless power failure, fear of armed robbery and rampant kidnapping, mosquito bites, ill-equipped hospitals etc as you go live in your father and motherland. As for me, I will be eternally grateful for the opportunity to witness civilization, in the true sense of the word, security of life and property, with peace of mind which has inestimable value. Enjoy your stay, Sir. Love you!

    He can always get a replacement when he needs it. The best way would be to officially report to American immigration that you want to permanently forfeit your green card status, then i can believe you. Anyone can always get a replacement when the green card is lost or destroyed.

    what’s the motive for burning/throwing the green card away?
    is the election not free and fair?

    maybe it must be a mere theory, and not in practical throwing away.

    throwing or burning your green card will not turn the election so long as it is the people’s choice.

    maybe it must be a mere theoretical word, and not in practical throwing away……
    because for doing such, there must be a reason behind it….
    but in any reason, so long as you aren’t from there, there’s still no reason for doing thus as a result of the announcement of mere election result.
