A graduate of Accounting, Masters in Financial Management, an Associate member of Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) and Chartered Institute of Taxation of Nigeria CITN).

As I read the profile of a one time chairman of First Bank of Nigeria PLC, Oba Otudeko, who doubled as the chairman of Honeywell Group, with diverse interest in various sectors of the economy, it fueled my desire to be a part of the conglomerate. I joined Uraga, to be an active participant in a vision that seeks to transform lives, employing sustainable processes to provide long lasting communities for Africa and the world at large.

In Honeywell group, my career kick started as a depot accountant for six (6) months then transferred to the head office as an account manager for seven years. For further career advancement, in 2016, I was invited to assume a higher role in the real estate arm of the group, Uraga Real Estate Limited, where I currently work as the Head of finance.

At Uraga, my stay has been rewarding and fruitful with respect to career growth. there have been opportunities that enabled me showcase experiences gained over time in various sectors of the economy. The work space has been cordial, such that we connect as a family.
Amongst others, I have attended several trainings; financial and non-financial, workshops and retreats. being involved in various businesses, project analysis and execution has broadened my business acumen.

in my opinion, Uraga is the best; it is the place to work; and the place to be. There is a huge opportunity for talent exhibition, as well as career development.
