I hold a doctorate degree in engineering and, for over a decade, I worked as a management consultant in the Nigerian office of Accenture, one of the world's leading technology consulting firms. I am currently a business consultant, web entrepreneur, and a budding publisher. I am happily married with three children.


Background Information

I recently published my first book of  contemporary essays 'Inside The Twilight Zone' with Lulu.com. The foreword written by my 76-year old British friend, retired Group Captain Freddie Scott, best captures the essence of the book: ..............................................

Foreword

 I was more than delighted when Yomi invited me to write a foreword to this book, since I had been pressing him to bring his work into the public domain ever since I had read just one of his essays. That was about one and a half years ago, since when, I have been fortunate enough to read a considerable amount of his work and have thoroughly enjoyed everything he has shown me.


There can be no doubt that Yomi underestimates the quality of his writing and it has taken a considerable amount of persuasion to convince him that he really should open his work to a wide audience. Initially, I made provisional arrangements to have his essays published in one of Nigeria’s most popular newspapers but Yomi remained hesitant and would not make the final commitment. However, by the summer of this year he finally agreed that he would publish a book of his writing and I believe this book will be merely a first step in what should be a significant writing career.

 As the reader will discover, his writing ranges from the philosophical to the pragmatic and covers a wide range of issues and subjects, embracing not only history but also current political, social and economic issues at both local and international levels. Yomi is a stylist whose pages are mellow with judgement and informed humour and there can be little doubt that he has the capacity and ability to become one of Nigeria’s finest writers.

 His own childhood experiences are also included in his writing as are his views on a range of domestic, political and commercial issues. He also deals with religious sensitivities and keeps the reader completely immersed in his delightfully flowing writing. Once the reader has opened the book he will find it so very difficult to put down. Yomi’s delightful mastery of words ensures this.

From my own point of view I see this publication as merely a start in Yomi’s writing career and I am absolutely certain that he will go from strength to strength and that his work will, in due course, become internationally acknowledged.
