Trump Victory: I have destroyed the US green card -Wole Soyinka

It will be recalled that shortly before the US Election, the Nobel prize-winner, Wole Soyinka has vowed to destroy his US permanent stay permits [green card] if the Republicans aspirant  wins the US Election. This is because of what he has foreseen which according to  him, has to do with what the US Elect President, and the Republican billionaire Mr Trump is set to do concerning Immigration. 

On Thursday speaking at south Africa, daily trust has his speech reported thus: 
"I have already done it, I have disengaged (from the United States). I have done what I said I would do,” the 82-year-old told AFP on the sidelines of an education conference at the University of Johannesburg.
“I had a horror of what is to come with Trump… I threw away the (green) card, and I have relocated, and I’m back to where I have always been” — meaning his homeland Nigeria.
