Nigerians and Soyinka! I laugh. Local champion. Nobody knows him. He just got the Africa quota for Nobel in Literature and we no hear word again for 30 years. Just so you know, musician Bob Dylan is this year's winner of the same prize and the guy didn't even bother to respond to the award for days. America is tired of all these hopeless people from failed societies calling themselves "writers" who can not do anything to better their countries. Shior!



I am really trying hard not to call the above daft.... I am not the man's biggest fan but I still have RESPECT for his achievements nonetheless... 'filling up a quota' you said.... You couldn't even manage that with 100 lives but you have mouth...

Nigerians, it is an Individual/Personal choice, so, he owes nobody any explanations. I guess it was a slip of tongue. He cannot and will not leave USA with all comfort for a country that is made dormant by our stealing politicians.

Am Not Surprise, Buhari's Administration Is Such That Nobody Accepts Responsibility For Anything. Buhari Denied His Campaign Promises


Minister Of Communication Denied He's Aware Of Data Rate Increase.

Can You Blame Obasanjo?

khadaffi:


Obasanjo did not tear his PDP membership o! The man recently denied ever tearing the card.

"Nobody knows him",
yet you took the pains to criticize him.
What type of logic is that?

The question is, how does what he does or doesn't do with his own green card affect your personal life? Because the way you guys carry this thing on your head, if you take your life half that serious you'll be a lot better for it.

And you call him liar, but you ppl know how to lie, where did he say he'll tear his green card publicly, you'll always be looking 4 ways to make ur useless arguments sound logical when it's not.

[quote author=rapistomenka post=51544720]Professor of Lies,a graduate of University of Liars with Lai Mohammed as your class mate.

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 E
Lol.....you are very funny

prof. u can lie oooo

It is unlawful to deliberately tear any country's passport. So Prof will not do it to avoid prosecution. You can't get away with it. So he played smart. Once he didn't go there again, he has technically dispensed it off

Atayis:
trump is great.wole soyinka is great.ARE U GREAT? .how does his green card affect you?
RESPONSE
1. Yes I am GREAT

2. Question 2 should be directed to soyinka: Wole Soyinka, how does your green card affect Trump?

I know your type, pretending to be neutral, but I know where you stand.
Maybe you should tell wole that Americans have decided, he should stop playing to the gallery, it could affect Nigerians living in US.

That would be the peak of naivety and idiocy from an erudite professor...if he actually did it.

The guy just stated facts and you went on the offensive, what has soyinka done for Nigeria if not cursing buhari in 1983, 2003, 2007, 2011 and blessing buhari in 2015. Americans don't take such a man serious.

I know you know, that soyinka will sing Donald Trumps praises in 2020, na him way.

Why do u sound so dumb? Prof. Soyinka promised to tear his green card if Donald Trump wins, now he's apparently lying he threw it away. If you are one of the fools he expect to believe his bullshit, it's fine with you. Don't force his lies on everyone's throat.

Retarrd, I'm the one that sounds so dumb or you? You useless piece of trash, do you even know what a green card looks like? Has anyone in your generation ever stepped on an air plane to Ghana talk-less the US? Do you even know the procedure when you lose a green card? Do you know how many years left before Soyinka applies for his citizenship? Since most of you retarrds on Nairaland have no life than to be using the data you can't afford for useless jargons that has nothing to do with your pathetic lives. I'll help you waste the money you don't have. You don't even have a pathetic Nigerian passport and you're busy worrying about someone tearing his green card. Just jump into a well and save the world from another lunatic.
