My name is Eugene Ohu, a Nigerian living in Lagos. I am 36 years old, born on 29 May 2007. I have a first degree in Pharmacy from the University of Benin (Nigeria) and a post-graduate diploma in Education from the University of Calabar (Nigeria). I also have a post-graduate diploma in Institutional Social Communications from the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, Rome (Italy).
I work as a journalist and a columnist in Thisday Newspapers, one of the major dailies in Nigeria (www.thisdayonline.com). While in Rome for one year I maintained a column in Thisday called "Rome Diary" (http://www.thisdayonline.com/news.php?theme=454). I now write a weekly column in the same newspaper called "Admiral", a critique of Advertisements (http://www.thisdayonline.com/nview.php?id=61657).
For many years I have contributed articles to the Spanish-news agency Aceprensa (www.aceprensa.com) on various issues.
I am also the Communications Director of the Prelature of Opus Dei in Nigeria (http://www.opusdei.org.ng/sec.php?s=699) .
Thus, despite training initially as a pharmacist and a teacher, I have spent the greater part of my professional life working as a journalist. Besides the aforementioned, I presently run a Media Communications Company .
