interviewed by Reuben Abati for The Nigerian Guardian.


When you're not working on computer technology etc., what do you do? How do you relax?
On weekends, I might cook some Nigerian foods while listening to highlife or soukous music.

I love to go to concerts. Recently, I saw concert performances by Jimmy Cliff, Chaka Khan, Tabu Ley Rochereau and King Sunny Ade.

I visit the public libraries about twice a week. I enjoy reading the works of African writers and writers of African descent.

On some summer weekends, I do my flying practice on a four-seater single-engine airplane at the local airport.

I run ten to 18 miles and occasionally play in local tennis tournaments. I cross-train by swimming, weight training, scuba diving, and cross-country skiing.

My family activities include attending plays or visiting museums.
