A started out my career in 1995 at the University of Benin, Benin City as a herbarium curator and rose to the position of lecturer I in 2005, a position I was until my resignation. I joined the employment of Landmark University in March 2011 as an Senior Lecturer and became an Associate Professor in 2012 by appointment. The long years of experience within the University context has exposed me to administrative positions at different levels of University organizations. Notable among these are (i) pioneer Director of University Wdie Courses (GSTs, EDS, TMCs, FMPs etc), Chairman of Landmark University Maiden Convocation Planning Committee, Head of Department of Biological Sciences etc. I have my first degree hons in botany and a specialization in mycology as reflected in the series of over 30 journal and book publications acquired.
