His story teaches hard work, consistency, doggedness and prayers.  During his formative years in Nigeria, he was driven by passion and will to succeed in his endeavours. On getting to the US, it didn’t take him too long to find his feet as a seasoned IT personality launching Axxess Technologies in 2007, a company currently at the forefront of creating a lasting solution to home healthcare delivery across the world.
