About Candidate

I hold a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in Linguistics from the Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, Japan, in addition to a B.A. (2nd Class Honours, Upper Division) Linguistics and an M.A. Linguistics and African Languages degrees, which I obtained from the University of Port Harcourt.

Currently, I am a Professor of Linguistics, and a Visiting Scholar at the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, Port Harcourt, with more than twenty years experience in teaching, research, administration, and community and professional service. By my training in language and linguistics, and the experience I have gained over the years, I can teach and examine students who are taking courses in language and linguistics, English language, and related areas.

I have had the privilege of teaching in different universities in Africa, including the University of Port Harcourt and the University of Botswana, and have occupied many leadership positions at various levels within and outside the university environment. Given my qualifications and experience, I look forward to an opportunity to teach at an international University where my professional, administrative, and leadership experience will be utilised.
