About

The Blog:

This blog captures my perception of contemporary issues within the spheres of economics,  finance and politics in a rapidly globalizing world, as well as a few lessons from my personal experiences. Occasionally, I will post articles and links which I find interesting and useful to my readers. Apart from starting discussions, I aim to inform, educate and to provoke critical thinking among readers.

Contributions from guest bloggers are welcome, both on issues within my purview and those that I am not qualified to cover.

The Blogger:

A project finance specialist with degrees in Economics and Development Finance. I have worked in England, Nigeria and Tunisia as an intern, teacher, kiosk assistant and an investment banker.

Top 10 finalist in the maiden edition of Nigeria’s first business reality TV show – ‘THE INTERN’; one of 200 mentees, selected to participate in the 2010/2011 Manchester Gold Mentoring Scheme.

My research interests include: PPP Financing, Aid Effectiveness, Economic Growth and Poverty Reduction. When I am not writing or appraising projects, I am listening to Afrobeat, doing freelance photography, or just spending quality time with my loved ones. I am a member of the alumni associations of Kings College Lagos, Babcock University, University of Manchester and The Institute for Public-Private Partnerships, Washington, D.C.
