An Abuja based lawyer Kayode Ajulo, has cautioned Nigerian Nobel Literature Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, against carrying his threat to destroy his American green card in protest of Donald Trump’s victory at the US presidential election.
Ajuko, reacting to threats made by Soyinka to destroy his American citizen’s card, warned that the Nobel Literature Laureate could run into trouble with the American law if he does so.
The lawyer told Vanguard in an interview on Thursday, November 10, that under the American law losing or having your US green card destroyed can be a serious problem. He said legally such is tagged as wishful destruction of government’s property.
Ajulo urged Soyinka to rescind his threat to destroy his resident permit, noting that he is far better and far bigger than that because such act is provocative and unacceptable.
He described Soyinka as a good ambassador who cares not just about Nigeria but the world at large, advising him to keep to it.
Recall that literary icon pledged to keep a promise he had given a few days before the Nov. 8 election, when he told students at Oxford University that he will cut his green card and start packing up if Trump won the polls. Soyinka also said he will leave the United States by Jan. 20, 2017, the day president-elect Donald Trump will be inaugurated. The green card is the U.S. permanent residence permit.
Meanwhile, following the widespread condemnation that trailed the prophesy by influential Nigerian TV evangelist, TB Joshua that Hillary Clinton would win the US presidential election which later turned out otherwise, the cleric has reinstated the post on his Facebook page after deleting on Wednesday, November 9. Prophet TB Joshua during his church sermon on Sunday, November 6, had predicted a narrow victory for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party presidential candidate.
The prediction was also posted on the Facebook page of TB Joshua ministries. But after Donald Trump convincingly won US presidential election, visitors to the preacher’s Facebook page on Wednesday, November 9, noticed the prophecy had been deleted from TB Joshua Ministries Facebook page.
