Q. Tell us little about yourself and some of the interesting projects you are currently working on.
A. I am one scholar who is committed to the advancement of knowledge and research frontiers in Africa. I believe we don’t have the luxury to sit down and fold our hands while waiting for national development to come. I also believe we have the human and material resources in Africa to get us to our desired destination in terms for growth and development. I am interested in any form of activities that will make the African dream come true. Presently, my focus is on cyber security and other allied research.
