I Won’t Destroy My Green Card Yet, Let’s Watch & See How Trump Turns Out Says Wole Soyinka

Nobel
laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, yesterday stated that he will not destroy his
United States’ residency permit just yet; while he warned that the victory of
Donald Trump in the U.S. presidential race could jeopardize U.S. support in
Nigeria’s fight against Boko Haram.
His response was necessitated by a heavy pressure mounted on the public affairs
analyst by Nigerians on social media after Donald Trump’s unexpected victory
over Hillary Clinton in the just concluded U.S presidential election.

In an interview, Soyinka stated that Trump’s ‘bunker mentality’ could see the
U.S. withdraw support for counter-terrorism operations in West Africa.

He seized the opportunity to reaffirm his stand on the destruction of his
United States of America residency permit as publicized in the media. In
response, the report quoted Soyinka as saying that he is biding his time until
Trump is inaugurated in January before deciding on his next steps.

“Why
don’t we wait until Trump actually takes office? 
“I am just going about my normal commitments, but definitely not getting
into any more commitments. Let’s put it that way for now,”
he said.

According to the report, under the administration of Barack Obama, the U.S. has
provided financial support and military training to West African countries
fighting Boko Haram.

During the parley, Soyinka reiterated that Trump’s “bunker mentality”
could see the U.S. withdraw support for counter-terrorism operations in West
Africa.

The Nigerian author and playwright also says that he will not destroy his U.S.
residency permit just yet, despite a pre-election pledge to “cut” his green
card, which is afforded to immigrants granted permanent residence in the
country.

The Nigerian author—who was the first African to win the Nobel Prize in
literature in 1986 – says he is biding his time until Trump is inaugurated in
January before deciding on his next steps. 


“Why don’t we wait until Trump
actually takes office?”
says Soyinka.
