Chemical Engineer / Writer

TEDxPortharcourt

TEDxPortharcourt 2016

Chidozie Akakuru is a creative who is passionate about the roles business and technology can play in improving the Nigerian society. He also has interests in management and organizational culture. Bagging a First Class Honours in Chemical Engineering from the University of Port Harcourt, he represented the University in the Pan-African Universities Debate Championship (PAUDC) in 2013. He also served as Editor-in-Chief of The Reactor, the flagship magazine of the students’ branch of the Nigerian Society of Chemical Engineers (NSChE) in 2015. Chidozie’s desire to understand the underlying nature of man and the fault lines that exist in our humanity led him to writing, thus, the bulk of his essays are rooted in exploring the psychology of everyday actions as well as the unseen forces that drive our decisions. When inspired, he also writes short stories and poems, which can be found on Ijéebi, a lifestyle blog that he co-founded.
