I am a Nigerian writer, researcher and development adviser. Currently, my main role is as a research analyst at the Centre for Democracy and Development covering our election, security and regional analyses. Except explicitly stated, none of my writings are informed by my work at, or are official positions of, the CDD.
My work has focused primarily on development where I have supported projects on the Nigerian communications sector, health policy development and foreign policy. Outside of work, I am Chair of the Trustees of the LIMUN Foundation, having been an avid MUNer in university. I have recently become a World Economic Forum Global Shaper with the Abuja Hub.
My writing has appeared in Stears Business, African Arguments, Africa Is A Country, Culture Custodian and the Punch Newspaper. I am an Associate Editor at The Republic: A Journal of Nigerian Affairs and Managing Editor at AFREADA, a pan-African literary journal.
I have an MSc in African Politics from SOAS, University of London and a BA in International Relations from Queen Mary, University of London. In between my degrees I interned at the African Union Mission to the United Nations and carried out a Fellowship with YearHere.
My favourite series is a toss up between The West Wing and The Wire. I am also a huge Marvel fan and enjoy travelling. I am an avid tabletop gamer and a games master at Nibcard Games Café – where I run a fortnightly quiz night.
