We need evidence because throwing away has so many connotations. ...

"threw away inside his bag"

"threw away into his bank vault",

"threw away into the lagos lagoon " ...or simply thrown into his agbada pocket". Prof, we need clearer defination of "threw away".

If Soyink can make Jan. 20 equals Dec.1st,he can as well Tear a Green Card by throwing it into his ECHOLAC bag cheesy cheesy

Dumb ass a Nobel Laureate is talking and your dumb ass has an opinion? Your entire life is nairaland, nothing more. You can't even spell; what the heck is "...Prof, we need clearer defination of threw away" Defination Sorry for the pathetic loser that wasted his/her resources sending you to school. Just shut your trap and go find a snake to kill or something. Is his green card any of your damn business in the first place?

Just Negodu how Soyinka decided to tarnish his image over something that shouldnt be his headache. He should have said that against the emergence of Buhari who has become a disaster in his native country instead he started pokenosing on other peoples affair! He just commited image suicide because his integrity will be questioned if he ever travels to the USA again!

I'm surprised to see people abusing Soyinka for what he said he did. Instead of having headache over Soyinka throwing away his green card, pray you get to his status in this life. Someone like Soyinka if he likes can get permanent resident card in Canada without hassle. So what is the fuse about him lying? The fact of the matter is Soyinka disassociate himself from Trump government. Soyinka has shown over his lifetime to challenge anything he thinks it's not right. Now the question for you abuser is, have you ever challenged the oppression and hardship you're facing in your own country?

You're neither a political thinker, not a tactician nor a master strategist. Your John Dilemme is a nonentity in this subject matter.

This is apparently far beyond your grasp. I quite understand your plight.

The man is old so I think we can all forgive his errors. He should peacefully enjoy Nigeria or equally denounce Nigeria due to the fact that the things he accused Trump of doing or capable of doing are equally evident in Nigeria right now. Prof. should be outraged by the level of poverty, the cluelessness of the government and the abuse of human rights in Nigeria. He should go on AIT or NTA and burn his Nigerian passport too....silly old man!

Large number of popular American celebrities actually threatened to leave the USA if Donald Trump wins the election. They have all eaten their words.

Soyinka should just kill himself. That will sound more honourable.
He won't be missed...since he is so desperate to make us believe that he cannot live in a world that has Donald Trump as US president.

So much for being a man of his words.
Dont you people have real problems? What do you really want from the man? He said something, y'all shouted like mad dogs all over the media that he should do it, now he came out to say he's done it, na another insult on how everyone in the US had eaten their words, to you he's still not honourable until he kill himself, you people are really sick and confused and I know 95% of these media tugs are people of a certain hateful region, na their ways, hate is their food.
