Speaking at the Oxford University in London, Soyinka said
“If in the unlikely event he does win, the first thing he’ll do is to say [that] all green-card holders must reapply to come back into the US. Well, I’m not waiting for that,”
“The moment they announce his victory, I will cut my green card myself and start packing up.”
Now, Nigerians are reminding him of his promise,some suggesting he do it on live TV..
Dear @channelstv kindly send a camera crew to Wole Soyinka's house.
We would like to watch the passport tearing ceremony ON AIR.

Dear Professor Wole Soyinka, please think twice before you tear your Green Card. You may find the recession back home hard to deal with!
