My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Abuja

I am a Nigerian and I have lived in Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria, for 25 years. The need to always be better led me to the discovery that education and knowledge is a major tool for self-development and growth.

I have a background in architecture but my venture into business has helped me develop and add degrees in business development and finance, skills that have helped me as a leader in real estate development and construction. I am passionate about education, self-development, and affordable real estate. My passions have become fully aligned with my profession and it's almost difficult to tell them apart.

As a leader I value empathy the most; a leader that wants his followers to fight for him must be ready to empathize with them.

In my free time, I love to watch movies. I would describe myself as a car and technology enthusiast.
