Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka on Monday disclosed that
he never applied for an American Green Card and that it was
former United States President, Jimmy Carter who got it for
Soyinka, at a press conference at the Freedom Park, Lagos,
Southwest Nigeria also took a swipe at Nigerians who
criticised him and wanted to know if he would abide by his
comment to dump his green card if Donald Trump should win.
An unhappy Soyinka said his decision to dump the green card
if Trump should win was personal and was no business of any
Nigerian, decrying that unwarranted comments and insults
against his personality on social media by bloggers and the
rest was uncalled for because they were not the ones who got
the green card for him.
