Here is the full caption of his Instagram post:

"I left Nigeria for the US in August 2014 with the intention of doing my PhD and returning back immediately. Unknown to me, God had bigger and better plans in store for me. From being an F1 student with minimum wage as a Graduate Assistant to becoming a postdoctoral fellow on F1 OPT and then becoming an Assistant Professor on an H1B visa has been one very long process. Today, I am happy to announce that I have just become a Green Card holder (i.e. US Permanent Resident)!! This process cost a lot of work, time, and money (as I self-petitioned via the National Interest Waiver which took a full year until it was approved). As I look back today, I’m thankful for my friend who pushed me to apply for the NIW and for the support of my friends, family, and colleagues who wrote me strong letters of support! It definitely pays to trust God and to trust His process in our lives!"
