Describe your contributions to and achievements in family planning.

5) I have helped to build strong quality assurance framework for MSN FP interventions.

What sparked your passion for family planning?

My passion for family planning originated from my immediate family. The large family size meant I struggled to get education. After school, my passion was rekindled when a young woman with 6 children, missing husband was willing to give me two of her children without even knowing me. I made up my mind to promote and champion family planning in Nigeria.

Give one or two examples of how you display leadership in your family planning work.:

1) I led the start-off of Marie Stopes Nigeria (MSN) social franchising work in 6 southern states in Nigeria. I recruited a total of 151 providers across these states. I participated in the training of these providers with UBTH. I provided continuous coaching and mentoring through continuous supportive supervision and certified these providers.
2) As Regional Manager in South West Nigeria, i led the implementation of USAID funded FH+ Project delivering an average of 865 CYPs monthly.

If you are named a winner of 120 under 40, how will you use this new platform and the $1000 grant to advance your work? :

Availability of consumables and instruments is a major challenge for many public sector facilities in Nigeria. This is one major reason for lack of access to FP services in Nigeria especially Northern Nigerian. It costs 1-2 USD to procure consumables needed to serve 1 FP client in Nigeria which translates to a minimum of 500 FP clients served with 1000 USD. I propose to use this grant to serve a minimum of 500 FP clients in Taraba State (Northern Nigeria).
