Trump Victory - Wole Soyinka Insists On WOLEXIT

Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has given an indication that he will tear up his Green Card on January 20, 2017, the day Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President of the US.


Last week, Soyinka had, in annoyance with the possible victory of the Republican candidate, threatened to destroy the card.

In an interview with The INTERVIEW, the world-acclaimed writer and human rights activist expressed resentment at Trump’s emergence, saying it spelt trouble for humanity.

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

By WOLEXIT, he 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.

Although he said he was not too surprised that Trump won, he noted that his victory had brought an already teetering world closer to the precipice.

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!”

  2. That's an intelligent man. The less intelligent ones are busy making memes. Do you know how many countries in the world Sole Soyinka can stroll into as he likes? He's a living legend.

    1. He should stroll into his motherland and enjoy the epileptic power supply n failed system with us. Maybe that way, he will help in the fight to rebuild our dear country

    2. He should give it a rest. How does tearing his green card help Nigerians, or detract from Americans.
      The Americans crying Wolf on Instagram makes me wonder who voted Trump in the first place seeing as he obviously won both Popular Votes and at the Electoral Votes. The video of Mile Cyprus crying totally pissed me off.
      They should let Donald Trump be. It's obvious that his supporters are not interested in seeking popularity through social media. I don't see how Trump can be any worse than George Bush.

      Woke Soyinka should keep his Green Card. It's very valuable.

    5. The fact that you are a noble Laurette does not mean you can't be stupid. Intelligent people are not moved by emotions they are moved by objective reasoning. I will be blunt here :Wole Soyinka is not an intelligent man! He lacks native intelligence.He is one of those who feels when they talk all must listen even when they are not making sense.
      Truth be told,Wole Soyinka is one of Nigeria's problems.

    1. Truly, why wait? Trump will take the office by then but why does Wole have to wait till that time? He strongly believed Hilary would win that is why he was making the assertion of tearing his Green Card.
      He is a Professor and come January he will say that he was 'speaking figuratively and not literally and having considered the thought deeply, he has decided that the world should give Trump a chance and accept change'.

  11. They should ban him from entering d US for life. Why all d noise from this yeye old man? What has the US gained from him?

  12. The American people has made a decision which must be respected by all.
    Trump may not be the best candidate, but he was surely the better choice.
    My joy has been on another level since yesterday, I thank Almighty God how everything ended.
    Wole Soyinka and his likes should not only tear their green card, they should as well do the world a favour by killing themselves.
    Now the Americans have their country back, no chance for globalists like Rochfeild family, George Soros who want to dominate the entire world.

  18. I have always known this guy as a two-faced nigga and a legendary agent of prevarication. This clown said he was going to tear his green card the moment Trump was announced winner. Why the sudden twist? That was how he became Buhari's unofficial ambassador after castigating the same man for years.

  33. Face your country. Let's join hands and make here great. Live America alone they don't like you either way. You are highly intelligent sir with all due respect. But always remember you are a second class specie by your color. Yes. You are black and to those whites no matter your intelligence you mean nothing to them when it comes to crucial matters involving world new orders. Racism is real. Think deep about this
