Wole Soyinka destroys his US Green Card

Nigeria’s Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka has finally destroyed his US residency green card and he confirmed it. He said he has fulfilled his earlier pledge to destroy his residency permit and abandon the United States if Donald Trump won the presidential election.

“I have already done it, I have disengaged (from the United States). I have done what I said I would do.

“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,” BBC quoted Soyinka as saying at an education conference at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa.

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.
