"We travelled for a programme in the US and had the chance to stay there, but I chose not to. Usually, they would cease your passport on those occasions because they are afraid you may run away, but I still had mine.
''People were shocked to see my passport on me, but nothing motivated me to think of that," he recalled, Kessben Online reports.
Dr Akapanga recounted that he lived in a Ghanaian family home for about a week and observed that the man was living with his nephew, whom he never saw for those days. He noted that he didn't fancy that life because he wanted freedom.
''What was the reason? He only came out at night to work because he hadn't gotten his papers right. I was not interested. I love having the ability to do things how I please, and I believe that happiness is the main goal in life,'' he added.
After he returned, Dr Akapanga's close friends were surprised by his decision to move to Ghana.
