Fear Grips African Leaders As Wole Soyinka Sends Dangerous Signal, Shocks The World 

It would be a promise kept, as the first African Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, announced on Wednesday night, that he will tear up his Green Card, on January 20, 2017, the day Donald Trump, the United States Of America, USA, President-Elect, will be inaugurated as the 45th President, of the most powerful nation in the world.

Recall, that Soyinka had in annoyance with the possible victory of Trump, threatened to destroy his Green Card, while delivering a lecture.

After the election results were announced, Soyinka who granted an interview on Wednesday, expressed resentment at Trump’s emergence, saying it spelt trouble for humanity.

Asked if he still intends to trash the card, he said, “Come January 20, 2017; watch my WOLEXIT!”

According to Analysts, by WOLEXIT, Soyinka seemed to be referring to his final ‘exit’ from the US, playing on Brexit, the expression referring to Britain’s historical exit from the European Union.

He said, “The possibility (of Trump’s victory), was looming nearer and nearer, getting scarier and scarier.

“As the 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.

“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,” Soyinka said.
