Everyone is self made but only the successful admit it.
Chike's fondest memories start from when he attended Federal Government College Ogbomosho (FEGO). According to Chike, he does not yet know what miracle kept him alive at Ogbomosho. At the same time, he credits FEGO as the catalyst for the strength of character he possess today. "It was tough in FEGO, but the lessons learned have served me well."
After graduating FEGO, Chike attended University of Lagos studying Mechanical Engineering. With rampant school closures and a year left to graduate from his 5 year Engineering curriculum, Chike picked up and left for the United States.
Unlike other folks that travel to a country they'd never been to, Chike had been traveling since he was five years old. He had already been to the U.S multiple times before he decided to come and complete his studies in the states. He quickly learned that nothing prepares you to live alone in a foreign country by yourself.
He gained admission to The City College of New York to study Electrical Engineering and graduated with honors. He was hired as a consultant out of college and that was how he started his journey in Sales Engineering and Software Development. He later gained his MBA from Columbia University. He currently works as a Senior Engineering Manager in Cloud Infrastructure Services.
Chike attends the Agape House of Worship based in Roselle, NJ. He works in the IT ministry and he's also a member of the Board. He credits Agape with keeping him spiritually fit and thanks God for the leadership at Agape.
Chike enjoys sports of all kind. He's an avid UFC fan, has a brown belt in Shotokan Karate, and loves to golf even though according to him, he could do so much better. On a recent trip with the family to Cabo, Mexico, he played two rounds of golf, one at Tiger Woods course. And, even though he sustained some sunburn, he loved every minute of the experience.
He loves to spend time with the love of his life Diana, and their sons, EJ and EZZIE. He also loves to go out with close friends for a great time of games, dining, and laughter.

Life! Nothing is promised to us, so I cherish everyday I get to see my family, friends, and loved ones.
I look forward to meeting and exceeding my wildest expectations. As it's said, no goal is unreasonable, only timelines are.
I am thankful for all the blessings God as bestowed upon my family and I. I have a gorgeous wife and two sons that drive me up the wall, ha. I am eternally grateful to God for all of these things and more!
