The correlation between Physics and Computer Science placed him on a very high pedestal amongst his contemporaries and endeared him to prospective employers which paid off with his employment as an Assistant Route Commander into the services of the Federal Road Safety Commission in 1994. His entrance coincided with the radical computer revolution in FRSC. He was commissioned and posted as Computer Programmer and was among the first few that relocated to Abuja from Lagos in 1994.
