He is 33 years old and holds HND in Marketing from Accra Polytechnic, the premier polytechnic in Ghana. Between 2009 – 2010, he was the Executive Secretary, at Old Fadama Development Association ( OFADA) and now Ghana team leader, Energy for Old Fadama. A student created charity to provide the residents of Old Fadama with a sustainable energy infrastructure to end the incessant fire outbreak in the slum.

As a human rights activist, he has in a number of occasions advocated both at local and International levels against Government’s forced evictions with the support of Amnesty International, International Alliance of Inhabitance and many other international human rights organizations who participated in the world social forum held in Dakar 2010. He led a campaign in Senegal – Dakar in 2010 during the World Social Forum against the eviction attempt by the Accra City Authority ( AMA) , when the Mayor had planned to evict over 25,000 residents living along the railways of Ghana without compensation and alternative resettlement plan for the victims of the eviction.

As a social worker, and a community – based rights activist, his work has impacted many lives; economically, legally and culturally. The formation of WISEEP and FLAP is a clear cut manifestation of his work for the poor, the vulnerable and the voiceless in society more importantly, the urban poor living in slums.
