Nigeria’s nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka may have gotten himself into trouble, as the controversy sorrounding his reckless statements prior to the November 8th 2016 United States presidential election seems to be generating a lot of reactions from nigerians and people all over the world. The nobel laureate winner had vowed that he will lacerate his United States green card if peradventure Donald Trump wins the presidential election. This statement did not go down well with so many nigerians, especially supporters of the U.S business mogul and now the president elect. A lot of people were outraged because such reckless statement was unbecoming of a man of the status of Professor Wole Soyinka, who is a nobel prize winner in Literature. On the 9th of November 2016, the republican candidate, Mr. Donald Trump was declared winner of the keenly contested election having polled the highest number of electoral college votes. Hence, the media and those who were enraged by the comment of the nobel laureate were expecting him to make do his vow, when he was confronted with his comment he disappointed his admirers and the whole world by reneging on his promise, and said he’ll splitter his green passport and not his U.S green card if Donald Trump is sworn-in on the 20th of January 2017. What do you make of this? Does Prof. Wole Soyinka have integrity problem?
The republican candidate in the United States November 8, 2016 presidential election, Donald J.Trump, in one of his campaign visits had reportedly told the agitators of the republic of Biafra waving the biafran flag at him, that those of them who wants Biafra republic should consider it a reality in his government. He also said he’ll give all the necessary support to make sure Biafra becomes a reality. Well all know how powerful and influential the United State president is, when it comes to world politics, and influencing the United Nations in decision making. What does this portend for the future of Nigeria if this promise becomes real? And how will this affect the relationship between the nigerian government and the republican candidate, should incase he emerges the winner of the election? Only time will tell, after the November 8 election. LETS WAIT AND SEE!
