Dr Okpara, Roy M. is a native of Umuomumu Uhude Ngodoukwu kingdom Isuochi, Umunneochi L.G.A of Abia State. He is the first of six children of Rt Hon. Chief and Mrs Onyema Okpara (Urichindere of Uhud).
He started his journey to academic excellence from Uturu Community Primary School, thereafter, he proceeded to the prestigious Marist Comprehensive Academy, Uturu for his secondary education.
He left MCA with high grades and immediately gained admission to study Economics at the Abia State University Uturu in 2008 and graduated in 2012 -in record time.
Upon graduation, he was posted to Makurdi, Benue State for his one year National Youth Service. For his passion for education, he enrolled to study MSc., Quantitative Economics in ABSU in 2015 also graduated in record time.
In 2017, he gained admission for his PhD in Quantitative Economics still at the Abia State University Uturu.
Today, God has crowned his efforts with success as he emerged as one of the YOUNGEST DOCTORS OF PHILOSOPHY.
As a Researcher and Data Analyst, he is hoping for better offers both in the public and private sectors to give back to society what she contributed to him.
Dr Roy, for making your siblings, parents, friends and contemporaries proud, we shall continue to be proud of you. We wish you more laurels, accolades and feathers. A doctor at 30, you are sure to be a professor in no time.
