A Nigerian from the ancient city of Kano. I am a graduate of Electrical Engineering from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and have an MBA from Bayero University, Kano. I earned an MSc in Finance as a Chevening Scholar from Lancaster University, England and have further postgraduate degrees from Heriot Watt University and University of Sussex. I am also a fellow of Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and an Associate of Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN).
I worked in Citibank Nigeria for over 10 years before leaving to pursue a Masters degree at Lancaster University. On returning, I joined Total E & P Nigeria Limited, an Oil & Gas company where I was involved in Financing of Projects, Managing Partners & Authorities, Local Content Development and Project Management and Control for 12 years.
Today, I run a non-profit that is dedicated to improving public schools and training and mentoring youths on business skills and providing funding for the businesses.
I enjoy reading, writing, traveling and watching great football especially La Liga.
