He was one of those agricultural extension practitioners that have agricultural extension field experience and become assistant director of the extension before he crossed to University where he acquired research and teaching experiences. He is a member of many professional associations and societies
However, my research focus changed when I assumed duty as Lecturer II in the Department of Agricultural Administration where I rose to the rank of Senior Lecturer in 2015. Administration is concerned with formulation of broad objectives, plans and policies, getting these done through others by directing their efforts towards achievement of pre-determined goals. It involves the guidance or direction of a group of people through the utilization of appropriate leadership style in achieving organizational objectives. Since, I have published papers on human behavior management, Communication flow, human resources management, and transfer of agricultural relevant technology and rural development innovations to farmers. These researches focus are reflected in journals, chapters in books, even conference proceedings and one technical report. The summary of the publication are 75% focused on human resources and conflict resources while 15% focused on both generally on Agricultural Administration and Agricultural Extension and Rural Development.

Hence, He is a Professor of Human Resources and Conflict position in Agricultural Administration..
