Biography of Prof. Brimmy A. A. U. Olaghere: The President General of United African States UAS.

 

Prof. Brimmy was born in 1945 in Edo State, Nigeria. He is one of the links between the north and southern parts of Nigeria. His mother is from Gombe state, while his father is from Edo state. He is married with many children; some of them live in Nigeria and some in the United States of America where his wife resides.

Prof. Olaghere is an educationist who has travelled round the world. In 1961, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa sent him to Ghana to work with Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, where he conducted a research and wrote the strategic plan for establishment of African Development Bank [ADB].

After the establishment of ADB, Dr. Nkrumah appointed him as Roving Secretary for Pan African Youth Movement for West Africa Region at Sierra Leone in 1964 and reported directly to him – Nkrumah.

He earned three degrees, awarded with nine degrees and many certificates. Prof Brimmy Olaghere spent forty years travelling to more than 167 countries and more than 10,000 cities.

Some he revisited more than five times, conducting research studies and strategic planning at his own expense. Prof Brimmy had his PhD in Econometrics and also studied Mathematics, Economics, Financial Account and Banking. He taught in almost 144 universities around the world, teaching and lecturing while travelling. He can teach 22 subjects and 44 courses.

What motivated him into politics was his life experience at a younger age when he started schooling at the age of 16, he was older than all the students in the classroom and was forced to sit behind the classroom window for six months.

At that age, he was also a young farmer who knew how to mix with people from different cultural backgrounds. He said…

“I knew what politics is all about being a farmer as well as a business man. Politics and Business are inter-twined, and even though people do separate them, the difference is very minor.

Therefore, politics for me began when I started going to school, this means as a politician, you have to know what you want, where you want it, from whom you want it and what you want it for.

Then you will be able to set a goal for yourself on how to achieve what you want by using what you have to get what you need. However, politics is getting to a point you want to be and as a politician you must be clear to plan for it to get there.

So to me, the only way I can get there as a politician is by comprehending my needs and accepting what I am; are they defining my goals, to achieve those goals?

Any obsession that goes in between, I will say no to them! Because in me there is good and in me there is bad, but since I choose the good, I must justify why I choose the good”.
