Lecturer I


I am a female Nigerian from Owo, Ondo State. I have a Doctor of Philosophy in International Relations from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife in 2016 after I bagged a Master of Science degree and a Postgraduate Diploma from the same department of International Relations of the University. I am married to Dr. John Ayoola and we are blessed with three children. I lecture in History and International Studies Programme of Bowen University, Iwo. I also teach in Political Science and International Relations Programmes of the University. My research interests cut across areas of International Political Economy/International Economic Relations with special focus on how issues of Insecurity affect the economic relations of states within the International System and the overall impacts the various interactions on the economic development of a developing country like Nigeria. I also focus on Human Right issues and International Law and the various ways in which these affect our individual lives as citizens of the global society and how they regulate the behaviour of states as signatories to these international legal documents.
