Short Profile

A former television broadcaster, I currently enjoy researching the internet and new media through doctoral studies at the University of Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain, feeding my desire to acquire new insights to enhance my soft and hard skills for greater productivity. Previously, I earned a double master's degree in International Communication from Leeds Beckett University, United Kingdom, and Vilnius University, Lithuania. Additionally, I am pursuing a blended MBA programme as an Orange Knowledge Fellow at the Business School Netherlands.

Twice though not concurrently, I was the image maker and head of Public Relations at the Federal University of Agriculture (FUNAAB), Nigeria, an assignment for which I still receive accolades for very creditable performance. During the period, the University won several notable awards. In between, I served as Deputy Registrar, McPherson University, Nigeria, on sabbatical, where I supported the pioneering efforts of the university management to establish a virile university, multitasking seamlessly between the Registry and Public Relations Division. Consequently, I have garnered a wealth of diverse experiences, with increased leadership skills in public relations, communication, and media relations, fielding a beefy background in higher education administration, human resources, and personnel management.
