About:

MY INTEREST AND RELATIONSHIP WITH CHEMISTRY DATES BACK SINCE 1987 AS A YOUTH. THEN MY COLLEAGUES WERE FINDING ORGANIC CHEMISTRY IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS AS SOMETHING OUT OF THIS WORLD. I GOT INTERESTED IN THAT AREA AND FIND OUT THAT IT IS THE MOST INTERESTING TOPIC ANYBODY CAN UNDERSTAND. THAT EXPERIENCE SPURRED ME INTO READING CHEMISTRY IN THE UNIVERSITY AND GRADUATED IN 1998, DID MY MASTERS DEGREE IN 2005 WHILE TEACHING THE YOUNG ONES IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN NIGERIA. BUT NOW I AM ALSO PASSING THE PASSION OF STUDYING CHEMISTRY TO THE YOUTHS IN THE TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS IN NIGERIA WHILE CARRYING OUT PHD RESEARCH IN PHYSICAL AND MATERIAL CHEMISTRY.
