I am born of the family of late Rabo Jibirin, in Sanda, Rano LGA, Kano State Nigeria. I attended Sanda Central Primary School, GSS Rimi, Kano State College of Education, University of Maiduguri, and Ahmadu Bello University Zaria. Currently, I am completing my PhD at the University of the Philippines Baños.
I have worked with the ALA Pilot Farm, Kano State Ministry of Education, Audu Bako College of Agriculture Danbatta, and, currently, I am affiliated with Kebbi State University of Science and Technology Aliero, Nigeria.
The scholarship has helped boost my research and career by exposing me to the latest and more advanced facilities, both field and laboratory. Also, interacting with senior scientists at IRRI enabled me to gain from their wealth of experience on various ways, most updated procedures and techniques of planning and executing research independently.
