Many Nigerians on social media have called on Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka, to tear his green card. This is following the vow he made should Donald Trump become the president of the United States.

It will be recalled that Soyinka made the vow last week while giving a speech to students of Oxford University, England.

According to the literary doyen, “If in the unlikely event he does win, the first thing he’ll do is to say [that] all green-card holders must reapply to come back into the US. Well, I’m not waiting for that.”

“The moment they announce his victory, I will cut my green card myself and start packing up,” said Soyinka, who is scholar-in-residence at New York University’s Institute of African American Affairs.

Trump won the US presidential election early this morning in an incredible victory that has shocked pundits and observers all around the world.

‎Democrats nominee, Hillary Clinton, had thanked her supporters and called Trump to concede defeat.

Twitter went agog following the results as some Nigerians reminded Soyinka of his vow, and others dragging him to the mud for ‘just opening his mouth to talk.’

  5. Does the green card Soyinka referred to belong to Lyon and his ilks? What’s their cup of tea if he decides to tear his card? Some boys think that they learn how to talk by abusing elders. No values in some areas again.

  6. It is a figurative expression for those who understand and have sufficient sense of humor. It is simply another way of declaring support for a preferred candidate. D.T, recalled, made a lot of unbecoming statements in the cause of his campaign that left a lot of people not only bewildered but also jittery. Befitting response to such provocative threat is a promise of suicide.
    But if you insist that Uncle WS should tear the Green card, then ask Uncle DT to carry out all the wide publicised isolationist threats he made to all American neighbours, friends and foes; Africans and Mexicans as well.
