Femi currently lives in Tanzania, and has over with 20+ years of public law and human rights expertise. Femi has been able to bring a unique angle to his work in the East African region, translating this expertise into the increasingly key legal areas of privacy, data protection, consumer-rights, environmental management and sustainability, local community rights and engagement (including human-resettlement); thereby bridging the gap between the international commercial mind-set, human rights best-practices and Afrocentricity.
Femi is a recognised expert international trainer, having been selected by the International Senior Lawyers Project (ISLP) to deliver training to the South African Human Rights Commission; the Uongozi Institute in Tanzania to deliver Oil and Gas Contract Negotiation skills to groups of senior public sector officials from across the continent of Africa; as guest lecturer, course designer and tutor at the Law School of Tanzania.

Having successfully set up the Africa Legal Network Academy (ALN Academy), which provides high level legal training throughout Africa to cater for key private, public and civil society sectors, Femi has now commenced a consultancy initiative (Hosted in Africa) to assist entities in focusing their efforts on building authentic Afrocentric / Pan-African modes of operation; drawing upon Africa's systems of knowledge, governance and justice. Hosted in Africa's core objectives are to promote and popularise Afrocentric excellence as an authentic narrative of regeneration for the continent and humanity at large.
