I am a security professional with over 21 years experience having worked with the following national and multinational organizations: the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, resigned after 11 years of meritorious service as a Superintendent of Narcotics. MTN - Security Coordinator (C and I Leasing) for 5 years, Schlumberger Oilfield Services - Security Manager ( Control Risks WA Ltd), Airline Services and Logistics Ltd as Chief Security and Safety Officer, CSSO overseeing their national operations...

Gifted with leadership, communication, problem solving, analytical and organizational skills, I have ability to prioritize, meet multiple deadlines and simplify complex situations.

I am reputed to be the only Security Officer in the history of ASL who has been able to achieve the highest compliance level with security procedures as it affects top level management staff, Expatriates, Customs officers, NEPZA officials. My administration in ASL ensured the best loss event profile as security incidents like theft was reduced to its barest minimum. This and many more, contributed in the certification and or re-certification of MMIA as an airport and Nigeria as a country.

My security alerts and briefs have always steered my company away from danger especially during periods of movement restrictions like in the last elections and protests by Labour and Civil Society groups. I also carry out detailed pre-employment vetting of incoming staff, background checks on existing staff. I have done residence, hotels and work locations security survey.

My present company employed me because they failed a security audit last year. Today the story is different - NCAA rates Things Remembered Nig Ltd high in the overall implementation of security policies, procedures and attainment of minimum standards required by the regulatory body. A feat I was able to achieve in 3 months...

I am a trainer of note, a team player and a self starter who will hit the ground running. You will not regret hiring me as I am sure to exceed your expectations.
