Currently working as Chief Orientation & Mobilization Officer (COMO) of the National Orientation Agency,Obi,Benue State.I believe that the purpose of human life is to serve, show compassion and the will to help others. This necessitated my early desire to offer myself for service to God and humanity. While in Secondary School, I served as Food Prefect and President of the Current Affairs/ Press Club among other responsibilities. The manner in which I approach tasks and issues with maturity and composure coupled with my ability to meet new situations with positive feelings of challenge have earned me tremendous goodwill.
