Wole Soyinka: I’ll hold private funeral on Trump’s inauguration day | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Renowned playwright and Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, says he will hold a private funeral on January 20 when United States President-elect, Donald Trump, is inaugurated as President.

Soyinka, who spoke in Lagos on Monday, explained that the funeral is not to mourn with the citizens of the US over their choice of president but to mourn the death of Nigeria’s common sense.

“Our common sense is totally lost. I am embarrassed sometimes that I occupy the same nation space with some people,” he said.

He also said Nigerians did not have the right to query his personal decision to tear his US green card.
