My name means “God leads me” in Igbo, my native language.
I have a diverse educational background in biomedical science, public health and medicine from prestigious universities in the UK and Grenada but my true passion lies in animals and nature.
Ever since I was a child, I was fascinated by the birds, lizards and insects around me. I loved caring for them and learning about them. I watched animal documentaries, visited zoos and wildlife centres, and collected ants in a jam jar.
I never lost that curiosity and wonder for the natural world. That’s why I founded the Greenfingers Wildlife Conservation Initiative, a project that aims to protect and promote wildlife across Nigeria.
Here you can find out more about me, my work and my vision for a greener and wilder future.
"The continued existence of wildlife and the wilderness is important to the quality of life of humans"
Here I received an award for our service to the Environment and Mankind from The Art of Living, an international NGO that promotes peace and conflict resolution in 156 countries.
The award was presented by its founder Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar during his first visit to Nigeria. I was also humbled to receive recognition from the former president of Nigeria, His Excellency Olusegun Obasanjo.
This was a proud moment for me and my team, who have been working tirelessly in the shadows to protect and preserve our precious wildlife. I thank God for the journey so far and I am committed to continue this mission, however challenging it may be.

As the teacher and coach of the Greenfingers Changemakers, I’m committed to training young people on the importance of preserving the natural habitats of our planet’s incredible wild animals.
I believe that by educating and empowering the younger generations, we can create a more sustainable future for all. Through my programs, I aim to inspire young people to explore their local environments, understand the impact of human activities on natural habitats, and learn ways to mitigate these effects. I hope to instill in them a sense of responsibility and respect towards nature and motivate them to become active conservation ambassadors in their communities.
Our programs are designed to be fun, engaging, and informative, with opportunities for hands-on learning and field trips to local wildlife habitats. I strive to foster a love of nature and a sense of curiosity and wonder in young people, encouraging them to ask questions, share ideas and work together for the betterment of our planet.
