Wole Soyinka, Nigerian
Nobel prize-winning author has said he will hold a private
funeral on January 20 when United States President-elect, Donald Trump,
is inaugurated as President.

Soyinka revealed this on Monday December 5, while speaking to journalists at the Freedom Park in Lagos.
He
explained that the funeral is not to mourn with the citizens of the US
over their choice of Trump as president but to mourn the death of
Nigeria’s common sense.

“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,”



Our common sense is totally lost. I am embarrassed sometimes that I occupy the same nation space with some people.”
He added that Nigerians do not have the right to query his personal decision to tear his US green card. He though said he has done what he promised

I
have already done it; I have disengaged (from the United States). I
have done what I said I would do.”
