The 82-year-old said in an interview on October 28, ”The day Donald Trump becomes president of America, I will call a press conference and cut that card to pieces, and they will never see me in America again“.

The Professor also made the statement while giving a speech to students of Oxford University, England. He said, “If in the unlikely event he (Trump) does win, the first thing he’ll do is to say [that] all green-card holders must reapply to come back into the US. Well, I’m not waiting for that. The moment they announce his victory, I will cut my green card myself and start packing up,”

Nigerians have have been trolling the Professor, with some even calling for a press conference to witness him fulfil his promise.

  1. but that statement was totally uncalled for. though he’s a kinsman to OBJ (who tore his pdp membership card) the prof really had no grounds for such an expression. (whether or not, what is that to America or to Trump as a person even if Trump had not win the election). anyway it’s time for him to make good his words
