Well, I’m not waiting for that. “The moment they announce his victory, I will cut my green card myself and start packing up,” said Soyinka, who is scholar-in-residence at New York University’s Institute of African American Affairs. The internationally-acclaimed playwright and poet described Britain’s decision to exit the European Union as a “ridiculous decision”. He said: “What is happening in Europe shouldn’t surprise any of us … It has happened before. We were here when Enoch Powell was leading his thugs out to drive blacks from here. “It’s a constant fight to try to get a nation to recognise its own noble persuasions, its own persuasions of the loftiness of human possibility. It’s for young people like you to say no to them whenever that happens.” Soyinka also informed the students that the torch of African literature is being carried by the younger generation.
