Born in 1963 in Toto Local Government of Nassarawa State, Professor Habu Galadima received early education at Shafa Abkpa Primary School and Federal School of Arts and Science, Suleja. He then proceeded to the University of Jos, where in 1987 he obtained a degree in Political Science. In search of further specialisation in International Relations and Strategic Studies, he pursued postgraduate training in his Alma Mata, earning the MSc degree in 1990 and PhD in 2006. His work experience has nearly always been in the academics. Joining the University of Jos in 1990 as Assistant Lecturer, he rose to become Reader in 2004 and full-fledged Professor of Political Science in 2009. He has held many positions in the University, ranging from Coordinator of Departmental programmes, to Head of Department of Political Science and Deputy Director Academic Planning. His local and international exposures are clear, judging not only by his appearances as guest lecturer in many local and international bodies, but also for his experience as Consultant for many organisations such as the DFID, ECOWAS, World Bank and the UNDP to mention but a few. He has published widely, with over twenty publications in local and international journals. He has written three books, edited two and made chapter contributions in more than 15. Happily married, Professor Galadima is blessed with three children.
