With his love for writing and reading, Eugene Ohu’s foray into Pharmacy is perhaps a testament to the often utilitarian choices of many Africans, faced as they are with survival needs. In this context, studies in the humanities bow to science, for the immediate satisfaction they bring: food and a good name. Communication eventually won, and though he still loves Pharmacy, he had to put it aside after two years of practice. And so for more than 20 years, he has been writing and helping people and organizations to communicate.
As a freelance journalist, he has maintained columns in some of the leading Nigerian newspapers, syndicating also for some foreign based ones who want an insider’s view of Africa; as an academic, he has a Ph.D in Institutional Social Communications from the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome and teaches Organizational Communications as well as Media Ethics.
He rests by playing with computers (not video games), messing with Linux servers, running a small business of A2P messaging, playing the guitar, photography and pencil sketching.
