Dr. R. O Jimoh

Lecturer I

Historical Background

I come from a humble Muslim family. I have graduated as a geologist and have practiced the profession before venturing into academics

Educational History

  • I obtained my school certificate from Abdul Aziz Atta Memorial college, Okene before proceeding to the University of Ilorin, where I graduated with a Sachelor of science in Geology. I also attended the University of Ibadan for both my Master of Science in Geology (Mineral exploration) and Doctor of philosophy in Applied Geochemistry.
