Following the emergence of Donald Trump as President-elect of the United States, former Nigerian Minister of Petroleum and Energy, Prof Tam David-West, has taken a swipe at Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, urging him to live up to his threat of tearing up his green card.
Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka was quoted as saying he will tear his green card if Donald Trump is elected the president of the United States
Speaking exclusively with Daily Sun
in Ibadan, capital of Oyo state, David-West said:
Prior to the US presidential election of November 8, Soyinka, a scholar-in-residence at the Institute of American Affairs, New York University, was quoted to have said he would tear up his green card and leave the US if Trump won the poll.
The Guardian UK
quoted Soyinka, while addressing Oxford students, as saying:
The former minister added:
He, however, dismissed reports saying Soyinka might go to jail if he cut his US green card.
