Wole Soyinka told Oxford University students that he’s ready to tear up his green card if Donald Trump wins the U.S. elections.

“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.”

The Nobel laureate is currently scholar-in-residence at New York University (NYU)’s Institute of African American Affairs this fall semester.

      @Thank you real Nigerian! first time I will agree with you on this blog! like anyone cares!I want Trump to win so that he can send most Nigerians in the US back to Nigeria to take back our country from the useless leaders! At least Buhari and his wife will not just wake up and be making trips to the US, as it is very clear Theresa May right now will rather discuss with Buhari over the phone and same will apply for Trump if he wins!

    Uncle Wole you’re taking things too far abeg. its not that serious. TBH its not even Trump winning that I’m scared of. I’m scared of his nutty supporters. Watching videos with his supporters speaking scares the crap out of me. These people are acting like Trump is the second coming of Christ. I bet all the closet racists would come out of the woodworks if their “savior” wins.
