I was born in Nigeria and after the mandatory 12 (twelve) first years of education which saw me always being top or nearly top of the class, I proceeded to the University for an LLB in Law and from there to the Nigerian Law School for the one year compulsory training to qualify as a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria. Here I graduated among the top 2% out of about 10,000 candidates who sat for the 2006/2007 session Bar examinations. My performance attracted the attention of the government of my home state (Bayelsa State of Nigeria) which gracefully awarded me a scholarship to study a postgraduate course of my choice.
Before proceeding to the University of Westminster for my LLM, I decided to gain legal practice experience in Nigeria and attached myself to a pair of prestigious law firms. During this period, I noted a knack and propensity for Commercial and Corporate Law which informed my choice of an LLM in Corporate Finance Law. I graduated with a Distinction from that course and managed to achieve one of the best performances in the 12(twelve) year history of the Course in the University of Westminster.
