Ghanaian living abroad said he would choose America over his mother and wife

He gave reasons and added that his wife knew about his stance.
"I always tell my wife that I'd choose America if they ask me to choose between her and America. Because she can remarry, but maybe I would not get the opportunity to come to America again."
