Trump’s victory might affect counter-terrorism operations in West Africa – Soyinka

Nobel Prize winner, Professor Wole Soyinka says that the victory of Donald Trump in the United State’s November 8 presidential election could lead to the withdrawal of support in Nigeria’s fight against the Boko Haram insurgents.

Soyinka told Newsmen that Trump’s bunker mentality could see the American government take back their help for counter-terrorism operations in West Africa.

The administration of Barack Obama, has provided financial support and military training to West African countries fighting the insurgents.

The Nigerian author and playwright had declared that he will destroy his green card and return to Nigeria if the republican candidate emerges as President-elect of the US and later confirmed that he will keep his word and tear his green card, on the day Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the country.
