fin secetary 2024

I am a seasoned legal practitioner with over 18 years of extensive experience in governance, risk and compliance, drafting legislation, policies and regulations, and data privacy.

My journey as a lawyer began in the private sector as a litigation lawyer in Nigeria where I became adept at leading legal teams, mentoring junior lawyers, legal research, case analysis, complex contract drafting, and courtroom advocacy. While in this space, I acquired excellent communication and stakeholder engagement skills that led to my long-standing expertise in negotiating settlements and effective client representation.

My Career transition into the public sector kicked off as the pioneer Head of the legal/data protection unit of the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria. I have a proven track record of providing strategic advice to senior management and Board members on three key areas - risk identification, management, and regulatory compliance.

Upon completion of my postgraduate degree in Drafting Legislation, Policy, and Regulation from the University of London, I have since formulated policies and subsidiary legislations that has improved the implementation of the organization’s regulatory mandate and maximized shareholders’ value through effective collaboration. Most recently, I led and ensured my organization’s achievement of the timely registration and submission of its annual privacy audit report to the Nigeria Data Protection Commission, a first at the organization.

Beyond my professional accomplishments, I am guided by the principles of diligence, hard work, integrity, taking initiative to go above and beyond, humility, and a spirit of resilience. I am grateful for every opportunity given to serve as I strive to make a positive difference in areas of policy development and regulatory compliance.
