Download the Curriculum Vitae of Professor Akpan H. Ekpo You are welcome to my website. The site is intended to acquaint students, researchers, policy-makers and institutions interested in Nigeria's and Africa's development with some of my modest contributions to the development of society. My contributions have been in the areas of teaching, research, publications, policy-advice and community service. I have and continue to mentor thousands of students who are today contributing to the development of human society in various ways. My belief is that scholars in Africa do not have the luxury of theorizing for its sake but must be part of developing the African society through research, social interaction, involvement in community development as well as being actively engaged in debates about Africa's future growth and development.

You will find in this site; my research interests, publications, responsibilities with government, the university, professional associations and the private sector. My network outreach is exemplified by the selected number of both national and international conferences that I have attended over the years. As a consultant, I have offered my expertise to several national and international organizations in the areas of macroeconomics, budgeting, fiscal federalism and related development issues.

I would like to share experiences and exchange of ideas with students and scholars all over the world. Those interested in receiving some of the more recent papers in my site could write or send an e-mail to me and I would be glad to make such material(s) available. It is my desire that through my site, value can be added to human development.
