I am a Nigerian writer, researcher and development adviser. I am a research analyst at the Centre for Democracy and Development covering our election, security and regional analysis.
My work has focused primarily on development where I have supported projects on the Nigerian communications sector, health policy development and foreign representation. 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 TheRepublic: 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 The West Wing, although I have fallen in love with Ted Lasso. 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.
