The 82-year-old to AFP on the sidelines of an education conference at the University of Johannesburg said ” I have already done it, I have disengaged (from the United States). I have done what I said I would do”.

“I had a horror of what is to come with Trump, I threw away the green card, and I have relocated, and I’m back to where I have always been”  i.e His homeland Nigeria.
