Gift  Iyioku



I am Gift Iyioku. I grew up in Ibadan, Nigeria and completed my undergraduate studies in the Department of European Studies (German Major), at the University of Ibadan in Nigeria (First Class Honors and DAAD Scholar). I am presently pursuing a Masters Degree in German Studies at The University of Alabama.

I intend to build an academic career, where my research work can be a springboard for the sustainable development in Africa. My research interest is in Development Policies and a Blueprint for African Countries, Comparative Politics. I am always eager to interact with people of other cultures.

I love watching movies and/or reading a fine suspense novel. You can find me also find me sleeping or cooking when I have absolutely nothing else to do.
