Akaleme disclosed that the politician forbade him from boarding an aeroplane, instead, forcing him to travel by night buses, running errands. He told his story on LinkedIn:

"I was forbidden from boarding an airplane. I was a house boy that was forbidden from going near the airport even though I served a very rich politician. When we traveled too far distances in those days, I will be told to board a bus. I remembered a day I had to take a night bus because I must get to the destination before them. On a particular night, there were no longer seats available in the luxurious bus, I had to stand from Umuahia to Lagos all night!"
