“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.
The highly respected laureate and nobel prize winner has finally destroyed his US residency green card as vowed.
He affirmed this information on Thursday 1 December.
Professor Wale Soyinka was quoted before the wake of the US presidential election of his resolved to terminate his residency and tear his American Green card.
Many taunted him on the social media just hours after the release of the election results daring him to fulfill his vowed.
Alas it seems the Prof has invalidated his Green card, silencing many who did not take him seriously.
Many though are concerned with the legal implications of this action including an Abuja based Lawyer Kayode Ajulo who warned that he (Professor Soyinka) may face jail terms if he makes good his threat.
