“Many people have wondered where I have been since September last year and it became a matter of rumour among many people and all what not,” he said.
“I want to say that I was away, because I went back to school and I have finished my lectures in May, where I read masters in international relations from Cambridge University.
“I want to use this opportunity to thank our former President Obasanjo for actually recommending me for that course to that university.”
