Biography

Dr. Eremie is a Certified Management Consultant (CMC), an Accredited Trainer: ISO 201700:2017 Guidelines for Management Consultancy Services, and a Certified Quality Assurance Co-Assessor of the International Council of Management Consulting Institutions. Faith wise, he is a Knight of Saint Christopher (KSC) in the Anglican Church and a Patron of the Boys Brigade of Nigeria among others.

Most of Dr. Eremie’s professional career has involved travelling. He has worked in or visited Nigeria, Benin, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Cameroon, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, Mozambique, Burundi, Eswatini (former Swaziland), Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Somaliland in Africa; India and The Philippines in Asia; Britain, France and Italy in Europe, and the United States of America and The Bahamas in North America. In each country visited, he capitalized on his avid interest in development tourism to savor the sights, sounds, smells and situations in erstwhile unknown regions, to learn about the people, their history, culture, food and environment.

Since retirement in 2013, Dr. Eremie has been providing consultancy services on agricultural and rural development to international and national organizations, professional bodies and civil society organizations.

Dr. Eremie is also an author with several collaborations in reputable journals and papers. He recently published Adventures in Development Tourism, a memoir exploring his over 4 decades working in agriculture.
