Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka is angry with Nigerians who he said wailed louder than the bereaved Americans, against the backdrop of the election of Donald Trump as their next President.
“I am embarrassed to occupy the same nation space as some imbeciles and morons. I am planning my Wolexit, which could be internal or external.
“On the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration, I will have a private funeral keep to mourn the death of Nigeria’s common sense. If the board agrees (because I do not like to be authoritarian), I will move the residency of my foundation out of the country (Nigeria).”
Soyinka spoke today, Tuesday, at a media parley at Freedom Park in Lagos.
The playwright wondered “why do Nigerians wail louder than the bereaved?
The Nobel laureate had threatened to destroy his Green Card if Donald Trump emerge President, the threat which he carried out to the letter by actually destroying it on Thursday last week. [myad]
