Nigerian Nobel Laureate,Professor Wole Soyinka said he would hold a private funeral procession when Donald Trump is inaugurated as the president of the United States.
Speaking earlier today, he said the funeral was not intended to mourn with the citizens of the US over their choice of president, but the demise of common sense;
“Our common sense is totally lost. I am embarrassed sometimes that I occupy the same nation space with some people.”
“On the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration, I will have a private funeral keep to mourn the death of Nigeria’s common sense. If the board agrees (because I do not like to be authoritarian) I will move the residency of my foundation out of the country.”
He also had a few stern words for Nigerians who queryied his decision to tear his Green Card following the victory of Trump at the polls.
“I have already done it, I have disengaged (from the United States). I have done what I said I would do.
“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,”.
The Professor has spoken.
