About Me

I am a first degree holder of Obafemi Awolowo University Ile - Ife, and currently enrolled for a Master of Business Administration degree of the National Open University of Nigeria. I possess well over 11 years post NYSC business management experience having completed youth service in 2008. I was awarded a commendation letter for outstanding performance on behalf of the Gombe State Government, by my place of primary assignment in 2008. I have attended several Entrepreneurship trainings (both paid and free) including a 5-day YESP training sponsored by the Bank of Industry at the Lagos Business School in 2016. The Nigerian business environment, where I operate, though quite challenging, but at the same time very ineresting. Of the numerous challenges Entrepreneurs are facing in Nigeria, accessing affordable funding for business scaling and expansion stands out.
