Curriculum Vitae

 

I was born on 3rd of July 1963 in Ibadan, Oyo State at University College Hospital. I attended Ilesa Grammar School, Ilesa, Osun State between 1973 and 1977. After my secondary school education, I worked briefly with Lagos State Judiciary in 1978. I later proceeded to Olivet Baptist High School, Oyo between 1979 and 1981 where I had my higher school certificate. In 1981 I got admitted to the University of Ibadan to read Veterinary Medicine. I obtained my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) in 1987. I proceeded on National Youth Service Corps Programme in 1988. On my successful completion of the NYSC programme, I set up private practice in Ibadan but my love for academics made me to register for a postgraduate master’s degree in Veterinary Physiology. I got a master’s degree after 2 years. In 1991, based on merit, I got employed in the department of Veterinary Surgery and Reproduction as a lecturer grade II surgery in Feb 1992. In 1998 October, I was promoted lecturer grade I. By 2001, I got promoted to the position of Senior Lecturer. I got the Mc Arthur Fellowship in 2005 and proceeded to the Atlanta Georgia, USA. This fellowship enabled me to answer a lot of questions that came up during my PhD studies which will soon be ending and I got exposed to modern techniques which I have incorporated into the methodology of my PhD. Also, currently I have been given admission into the professional postgraduate fellowship of the college Veterinary Surgeon of Nigeria to specialize in Large Animal Surgery.
