Tearing Of Green Card Brouhaha - Wole Soyinka Sends 'Snattering Nit-Wits Of The Internet A Memo..

Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, on Saturday, came hard on those asking him to tear his US Green Card as he vowed to do once billionaire businessman, Donald Trump, won the US presidential election.



Online commentators have been daring the revered playwright to carry out his threat which he reportedly made few days before the election since Trump had won.

But Soyinka, in a statement he signed titled, “Red card, green card– Notes towards the management of hysteria”, described the online commentators as “noisome creatures” whose ignorance resonates largely on whatever they comment on.

He said, “Let me end with a Red Card to those noisome creatures, the nattering nit-wits of Internet: maybe Trumpland is not as despicable as the Naijaland you impose on our reality from your secure cesspits of anonymity.

“Go back to school. Your problem is ignorance, ignorance of whatever subject you so readily comment upon. Learn to study your subject before opening up on issues beyond your grasp.

“Sometimes you make one feel like swapping one green for another, out of embarrassment for occupying the same national space as you.’’

Soyinka maintained that he would carry out his threat but not at a time fixed by his critics.

He said, ‘‘If it even becomes convenient to bring it forward, I intend to do so, but please don’t come at me with plaints of time imprecision.

“I never discussed it with you, nor invited you to a private decision whose execution was already in the making.

“Do not try to browbeat me. It’s a waste of time – all you have to do is immerse yourselves in my antecedents. It will not attempt to deal with the notion of an exit time-table as conceived by others.’’

The scholar-critic, who also narrated why he decided in the past to issue a ‘Red Card’ to countries such as Australia, China, South Africa and Cuba, added that the decision on his US green card made while addressing a group of students at Oxford University was not a public lecture.

    3. Wole Soyinka is clearly not of cognitive and intellectual altitude of most people who occupy the Nigerian internet space.
      It is so disheartening that almost every Nigerian has turned into an internet troll of some sort.
      What if he was using a figure of speech? Would it mean that my goat has taken in (means to take the goat inside the house?), I will cry a river for you (someone like James will literally sit and wait for your tear drops to turn into River Niger.
      How many Americans have asked all those rappers that said they will exit America to do so. Please, let us utilize the time available for us to improve in our selves, other than waste it in endless anonymity of the internet space.
      A word is enough for the wise ( someone somewhere will be expecting just one word as per expecting tearing green card)
      Nigeria already have enough issues, the economy is hitting ocean bottom (some of you will be expecting to sleep and wake up inside the pacific before you will understand). Do something positive to impact someone today. Don't be part of the rot.

Do you have any idea what the term 'Nobel laureate' means? Can you even whisper where Soyinka can authoritatively stand and speak? It's one thing to dislike him but to discredit him is just unacceptable.

  24. I was not expecting him to respond. Wondering why he never uttered a word after blessed Chinua Achebe published "There Was a country"

    Maybe He did and I was not aware.
    For all the Internet urchins throwing tantrums most especial those ones that come under anonymous una well done oo

    You don't exchange words with critics like Wole Soyinka. Their tongue is evergreen irrespective of their age.

    They won't eat you. Your taste is bland to them anyway but they will definitely discard you in a bin of irrelevance. Comparing WS with Reuben Abati is like comparing oxygen with food. One is needed (oxygen) while the other is only wanted (food).



    “noisome creatures” whose ignorance resonates largely on whatever they comment on....your secure cesspits of anonymity...go back to school. Your problem is ignorance, ignorance of whatever subject you so readily comment upon. Learn to study your subject before opening up on issues beyond your grasp"

    1. Asoge, what could he have said about Achebe's book? Is there anything Achebe wrote in that book you can contradict? And you tried to shield your bias by calling him "blessed". For your info, Wole supported Biafra 100%. He is/was a man that doesn't tolerate injustice. I hope I wasn't too hard on you because you're my very very good friend. I prefer to remain anonymous.

    2. How do you expect him to say anything about the book? That book contains 99.9% truth. I noticed diehard Awolowo followers never said anything about it. By the way, Soyinka had never liked Chinua. There's no love lost between them.

      Anonymous 14:24 I used the word blessed not out of being bias because the number of Achebe's books I have read. Even books written on him. My interest for the Biafra started since 1993 when I saw a biafran currency note in my grandmothers wardrobe. And till date there's no igbo friends have met that I hv not asked their own side of the story. 55% of my friends are igbos and just 5% from my tribe . I judge people based on their character not on their tribe.
      @The Great... I love the book even have the copy both in hard and soft copy. that is his own side of the story. I wish ojukwu is alive to give us a word for word truth and I wish the old generation (obj, buhari, gowon) could tell us the real truth and try to resolve the tension they are creating in our own generation.
