Prior to joining CCCU, I was a Senior Lecturer at Baze University, Abuja, Nigeria. I also taught at University of Kent in Canterbury, UK.
I hold a PhD in Politics and Government, and a Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education (PGCHE) from the University of Kent, UK, an MPhil in West African Studies from the University of Birmingham, UK, an MSc in Research Methods in the Social Sciences from London South Bank University, UK, and a BSc in Political Science from Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Nigeria.
My research focuses on federalism, political economy, ethnicity, democracy and elections, and terrorism in Nigeria.
I have reviewed articles for a number of journals, including Nigerian Journal of Political Science, Ubuntu: Journal of Conflict Transformation, and African Journal of Peace and Human Security.
I have consulted for a number of notable international non-governmental organisations on security and other related issues in Nigeria. I have also advised a number of state governments in Nigeria on issues related to inter-governmental relations, and corruption, among others.
