I am a Lawyer, a development expert, a justice sector reforms advocate, an human right educator and a listener. I major in sensitizing communities on their basic rights and duty under the Law and helping them in enforcing the rights and championing them whenever it is breached. I have the experience of not just applying the Law as it is but also question the Law, explain the Law to people and suggest needs for reforms where necessary. I am involved in breaching the gap between Government institutions and the people in all sectors and also engage the people to question the government for a sectorial change in their communities. I'm interested in joining the network so as to create a synergy for a formidable team beyond my country (Nigeria) in ensuring justice to the extremes of the rural societies in Africa and the entire world.
