RENO Omokri, a former aide to the former President, Goodluck Jonathan has advised Nigerian Nobel Prize winner, Prof. Wole Soyinka to think twice before tearing his United State green card.
The statement is in response to a comment credited to Soyinka while addressing some students in the United State.
Soyinka had boasted that he would tear his green card if the Republic Candidate, Donald Trump emerged the winner of the Presidential election.
Mr Soyinka said he feared the Republic candidate would ask all green-card holders to reapply to come back into the US. “Well, I’m not waiting for that,” the Nigerian author told his student audience.
“The moment they announce his [Trump’s] victory, I will cut my green card myself and start packing up,” he added
Responding to the comment, Omokri said “Dear Professor Wole Soyinka, please think twice before you tear your Green Card. You may find the recession back home hard to deal with!”
The former aide also pointed to a self-acclaimed man of God, Prophet of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) T.B Joshua who predicted that Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton will win the election in a narrow victory against her Republican rival.
Prophet Joshua had said “Ten days ago, I saw the new President of America with a narrow win,”
“By the way, in order not to keep you in suspense, what I frankly saw is a woman.”
Omokri who didn’t hide his position on the failed prediction said “Dear TB Joshua. Who gave you your prophecy? My God is not a man that He would lie neither is He the son of man that He would repent!”
