I’m a young and passionate Nigerian who is passionate about change. I used to be a martial arts enthusiast gaining training in Kung-Fu, Judo, Karate and Chung-Do-Kwon (traditional Taekwondo).
At some point in life, I got frustrated learning about cadavers in the bit to become a medical doctor and trying so much to look for microbes in one of OAU’s microbiology laboratories. Somehow brands and businesses look more interesting.
I love discussing politics, business and social change, and more importantly I love helping people and organizations succeed.
