About Me

I am lawyer, gender activist and human rights advocate. I studied Law in Nigeria and the UK. I was going to be a top Corporate/Commercial Lawyer after my studies, and then I got the opportunity to go to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, Netherlands as an intern for 6 months. My experience at the ICC changed my views about life, justice and my career focus. I am convinced that the problems we face in the world and particularly in Africa is as a result of the failure of our justice systems and poor implementation of human rights. I enjoy interacting with people and sharing experiences and knowledge. My expertise: Human rights, African regional human rights system, International human rights law, Legal and social research, Project management, Gender mainstreaming, Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG); My passions: Art, music and reading
