"Though the restriction was lifted by the current administration, embassies have so many applicants to work on plus COVID-19 measures. Visas are not approved in just a day. Time is required. Visa takes months and years to be processed depending on the visa type and purpose of travel."
Why appreciating God for his wife, he stated that the decision to live anywhere in the world was their business and not that of outsiders.
"As for me and my dear wife, nobody can decide for us when and where to live. We may decide to live in Uyo, Lagos, Abuja, Enugu, Port Harcourt, U.S or any country. We have nice and beautiful cities in Nigeria and many foreigners are having fabulous time living here."
