Lagos - Noble Laureate Wole Soyinka has been trending on twitter, for the wrong reason though, since Donald Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States.
Soyinka had vowed to tear his green card if Trump wins the election.
“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,” said Soyinka, who is scholar-in-residence at New York University’s Institute of African American Affairs this autumn.
“The moment they announce his victory, I will cut my green card myself and start packing up.” The Guardian reported Soyinka as saying on November 2, 2016.
Following the outcome of the election that saw Trump win, Nigerians have taken to twitter to mock Soyinka and force him to walk the talk.
