I had my early Quranic and Western education in my home town-Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria, before proceeding to Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Nigeria, to  read Medicine and was awarded MB;BS degree in 1981.
My residency training in Ophthalmology from 1986 to 1993 was largely obtained at the Ahmadu Bello Teaching Hospital, Kaduna. The training was rounded-up at the Leicester Royal Infirmary, England during a one year (1992/1993) clinical attachment which was funded by a scholarship for my out-standing performance by the National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria. My sub-specialty training in Vitreo-retinal and laser surgery was obtained at the El-Maghraby Eye Hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia during a one year (1995/1996) clinical fellowship awarded by the prestigious El-Maghraby Foundation of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
My professional, research and academic careers all began at the National Eye Centre Kaduna in 1993 and continued at the University of Ilorin where I transferred my service in 2000.
