About / Bio

I am a practical beekeeper with over 15 years field experiences. I have Higher National diploma on Animal production Technology and a Master Beekeeper Certificate. I have worked as a Beekeeping extension/research officer with Bee conservation projects. Currently working with Ebonyi State Agricultural Development programme under the State Ministry of Agriculture and Natural resources as Senior Agricultural Supt. and Beekeeping resource person.

My main mandate is to safe the honeybees from departing the mother earth. Based on this, I specialized on queen bee rearing to continue replacing the colony loss in both nature and human management. My field research abstract paper on VARROA MITE INFESTATION: A THREATH TO Nigerian BEEKEEPING INDUSTRY has been accepted for presentation during Apimondia Sept. 2019 conference at Canada.
