About Me: 

I am a Nigerian attorney with extensive experience in litigating human rights cases, research, publication, legislative advocacy and legal aid and assistance. My passion particularly lies in the area of women and children. I have a master in international law and human rights from St Thomas University School of Law Miami, Florida and a Doctor of Juridical Science Degree, just a fancy name for a Doctoral in Law from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, Pennsylvania. My dissertation focused on the role law plays in challenging and curbing corruption through the use of anti corruption commissions.I was fortunate to represent my organization before the African Commission of Human and People's Rights, in Banjul, The Gambia, bringing before the Commission the human rights deterioration in Nigeria and the travesty of justice experienced every day. I am a freelance consultant

I love to travel. I have being to numerous African countries, United States of America, Canada, Spain, United Kingdom Ireland, Dubai, Hungary, Slovakia, Austria and Italy. I love to put my thoughts on paper and share it with the world. I have authored and co - authored numerous articles and publications most of which borders on women human rights and developmental issues.

I am the youngest of 5 biological siblings, you can call me the big baby of the family. I have an adopted brother and sister whom i adore so very much. I am a fun person who exhumes positivity at all times, I love to laugh, meet people and share ideas. I see myself as an extrovert but could be shy sometimes. I relax by just listening to soft music, reading an easy novel and generally enjoying my domain whilst basking in the ambiance of my environment. I am a scrabble addict and can play scrabble back to back for 24 hours....lol. I used to play basketball till i hurt my knee. I love my music, it keeps me sane and iIlove my movies too, i like to keep up with recently released movies. I believe in God and I try to be a better person each day.

My goal in life is to make positive impact in the lives of people everywhere through my work and to be able to be the voice of the voiceless and less privileged.
