Personal profile

I joined the School of Education, UNNC, which is now the School of Education & English, as Assistant Professor in September 2018, after teaching at the university’s Centre for English Language Education (CELE) from September 2013 to August 2018. While in CELE, UNNC, I taught on the then School of Education MA TESOL programme, and on the MA Applied Linguistics course of the then School of English, UNNC. Prior to joining UNNC, I taught ESOL/EFL in the United Kingdom (UK) at Manchester College; and EAP at the University of Manchester, the University of Bolton and the University of Bradford. I have also been an examiner for Cambridge ESOL (speaking and listening) and I have liaised with UK ESOL and EAP standardisation bodies such as ASCENTIS and the British Council. This is in addition to training teachers in the UK towards the Certificate/Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (CTLLS, DTLLS).

Preceding work in the UK, I taught at the Department of English, University of Jos, Nigeria. My PhD research at the University of Ilorin, Nigeria, focused on language attitudes and implications for English as a second language in the language learning and language planning contexts. I then proceeded to the Institute of Linguistics, J.W. Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany, for post-doctoral research in bilingualism and language contact as a fellow of the German Academic Exchange (DAAD). I have also won the Ford Foundation research grant to study language contact and conflict.
