Watch My WOLEXIT!”-Professor Wole Soyinka Maintains Stand On Tearing Green Card Following Trump’s Win


 Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka trended on social media today after Nigerians remembered that he threatened to trash his US green card, if the Republican candidate, Donald Trump, won. 

The learnedProfessor in an  exclusive email interview with The Interview today, has vowed to keep his word. He also spoke on the future of a Trump world. Read below: 

Did Donald Trump’s victory surprise you?

Not altogether. The possibility was looming nearer and nearer, getting scarier and scarier.

What do you think Trump’s victory means for the world, especially Nigeria?

It’s brought an already teetering world closer to the precipice.

Do you think the victory of Trump, who threatened to build a Wall is a coincidence coming exactly 27 years to the day the Berlin Wall came down?

Trump’s Wall is already under construction. Walls are built in the mind, and Trump has erected walls, not only across the mental landscape of America but across the global landscape. I am glad you referred to the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall – that was one anniversary in reversal!

Will you thrash your green card, as you reportedly said you would?

Come January 20, 2017; watch my WOLEXIT! (Donald Trump will be sworn-in as the 45th President of the United States of America on Friday, January 20, 2017)

At what point did it occur to you that Trump’s victory was inevitable?

As Election Day approached, the specter became near palpable. I refused to switch on the television this morning until I had stiffened myself with a strong espresso. I felt disaster in my marrow.
