I have a strong passion for international development. I believe prosperity can be spread through the kindness of a few people and some practical self economic and social empowerment programmes that can be introduced with minimum fuzz, by our individual and collective will to make a difference.

I became a Labour Party member because of its ethos on fairness, tolerance, decency, compassion, equality and social justice. These ideals are central to my personal belief and which I’m prepared to spend the rest of my life defending. It was a great privilege to have worked with the Rt. Hon. Harriet Harman QC MP on the Shadow International Development Policy Review Task Group on Business and Enterprise a couple of years ago, which is hoped to shape future Labour Government Policy on International Development Aid and local transformational agenda.

Give Something Back!

As part of my personal ‘give something back initiatives’ both here in the UK and Africa, we started the rebuilding of my old primary school, IMG Primary School Ibadan Oyo State in 2008. A whole block of two classrooms was completed and furnished through financial donations and support of various kinds from friends, families and associates. We still need books and science equipment for the young people. And, as a former student of Methodist High School in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria, my home town and where I had my secondary school education, this is another project I’m very passionate about starting in the near future.

If you are interested in supporting any of my initiatives through financial donations and or in-kind support, please feel free contact me.
