The social media atmosphere has been on the high and frenzy with thrills and drama following the emergence of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States.
On Wednesday, November 9, Trump was announced the President-elect after defeating heavily favoured Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, ending eight years of Democratic rule.
About a week ago, Prof Wole Soyinka, had stated that he would destroy his green card and subsequently leave the United States if Trump becomes the next president.
The Nobel laureate said this while giving a speech to students of Oxford University, England, reports the Guardian UK.
However, following the emergence of Trump as the president of the US, Nigerian netizens are beginning to seek for the “passport tearing ceremony ON AIR”.
See tweets below:
Dear Professor Wole Soyinka, please think twice before you tear your Green Card. You may find the recession back home hard to deal with!

Dear Wole Soyinka, don’t tear it, just tell us that your statement was a figure of speech called ‘Irony’. We’d just lockup and let you be.

The only honour left for Prof. Wole Soyinka is to destroy his GC & save his legacy. But I urge him to consult PMB first for soft landing
