Court conviction of Trump: Wole Soyinka may consider restoration of his permanent residence card in America

The Nobel laureate Prof Wole Soyinka has hinted that in light of the guilty verdict passed on former President of the United States of America (US), Donald Trump, in his hush-money criminal trial, he (Soyinka) might choose to apply for restoration of his card of Permanent Residence in America.

Penpushing reports that in a statement personally signed on Friday described the guilty verdict passed on Trump as a daybreak on a new democratic promise, pointing out that the verdict presented a clear warning that sooner or later, the clamour of equity would break down the stoutest gates on guard across the citadel of impunity.

The globally known scholar expressed the belief that for millions in anguished parts of the world, certainly for those in vast swathes of the African continent, the verdict was a daybreak on a new democratic promise.

Penpushing further reports that Soyinka in the statement stated that the Trump debacle was also a challenge, a call to preparedness and steadfastness, noting that it is “Not yet Uhuru”, not anywhere close for humanity in our global village.

“Installed and putative fascisms – secular, military or theocratic – will extract from this only the wrong lessons, batten down and ‘crackdown’ in self-protection. It is “Not yet Uhuru”, adding that nonetheless, a celebration, albeit in a minor key, is justified.

Penpushing also reports that it is recalled that in a seven-week-long historic trial, a New York jury on Thursday found the former President guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business documents in relation to a hush money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels in the run-up to the 2016 America Presidential election, which he won.

The sentence of Trump, a former Republican President, who is set to face off against Democratic incumbent Joe Biden in November’s election,will be pronounced on July 11, 2024, as he had pleaded not guilty

Penpushing reports that the hearing falls four days before the start of the Republican National Convention in Wisconsin, where Trump is expected to be officially recognised as the party’s presidential candidate
