After completing my NYSC in 2011, he was not satisfied with the level of education attained; he started another programme through Jamb Direct Entry admission gained into University of Calabar, where he bagged B. Agric. (Soil Science) at Second Class Upper Division in 2015, the best graduating student in the Department, where he received an award of Pa Ejemot Esu Memorial Prize for the best graduating student in the Department of Soil Science, 30th Convocation of the University of Calabar, 2017. During the B. Agric.(Soil Science) Programme with the University, he joined the service of the University of Calabar as a Hall Supervisor with the Centre for Educational Service (CES) in 2011, where his appointment was converted to the Mainstream of the University of Calabar as an Agric. Officer II in 2013 and Graduate Assistant in the Department of Soil Science in 2017 as a lecturer after completing the B. Agric.(Soil Science) Programme . He obtained M. Sc. in Soil physics and soil and water management from the same University. He is a member, Soil Science Society of Nigeria (SSSN) since March, 2015. Conferences, he has attended include 41st Annual conference of Soil Science Society of Nigeria, Calabar, Cross River State, Advanced Training Programme on Organic Agriculture (ATPOA) organized by Department of Soil Science, University of Calabar in July, 2018 and STATA Training for Nigeria Agricultural Policy Project organized by USAID, Michigan State University in the University of Calabar, March, 2019. He has published extensively in peer-reviewed, globally recognized journals and his work is frequently cited in Journals and research work of students in areas of Soil Science. My current research interest is in the area of Soil physics and Hydrology. I am happily married with Children.
