Geraldine’s professional background is in corporate and commercial law, having been called to the Nigerian Bar 34 years ago armed with a Masters Degree in Law from the University of London in those fields.

After a career in academics in the Faculty of Law, University of Calabar spanning 5 years, she crossed over to the banking and financial services sub-sector honing her capacities and competencies as a banker for 15 years. She also has a strong background in conducting management and legal training and in providing financial advisory services post her banking career.

She was the pioneer head of the Cross River State Department for Investment Promotion and set up the Cross River Investment Promotion Bureau in 2007/2008 while part of the Executive Cabinet of HE, Liyel Imoke, Governor of Cross River State before her dis-engagement to work in the development sector – specifically economic growth drivers and effective poverty reduction as a Private Sector specialist.

Her sojourn in government exposed her additionally to the Nigerian political landscape, honing her ability to navigate this terrain with balance and to support the promotion of inclusive governance.

Her main interests are reading as widely as possible, travelling and experiencing other cultures and engaging with people, especially young people. One of her core beliefs is that these pursuits, besides being enjoyable, actually help an individual, in this case herself, to become more of a human being in order to give increasing value to others.
