Meet Abubakar

"For Those to Whom Much is Given, Much is Expected"

MY BACKGROUND

Originally from Garkida in Adamawa, Nigeria but was born and raised in Kaduna, Nigeria.  My family made many sacrifices for me and I remain grateful to them.

I am a practicing muslim and married with children.

EDUCATION

I attended Essence International School for my high school education. Essence is a well known school in Northern Nigeria for its high standard of American-style of education and for many years since it was founded in 1982, Essence has produced great talents such as politicians, medical doctors, engineers, lawyers, architects, musicians and some of the best basketball players in the country – I got a fantastic and formative education there.

After Essence, I matriculated to ABU in Zaria, Nigeria; I graduated with a degree in electrical engineering.

After graduating from ABU and undertaking the one year NYSC programme, I attended Strathclyde for an MSc. in Communications Technology & Policy in 2006. The following year, I enrolled into another MSc in Information Systems at the same Glasgow in Scotland.

After attending Oxford for a Project Management programme, I went ahead for an MBA in Communications Management from Buckingham, in England.
