Biography

Dr. Wifa graduated from Rivers State University with a Second-Class Upper Degree and was subsequently called to the Nigerian Bar in 2012. He then proceeded to the University of Aberdeen where he completed both a Masters in Oil and Gas law (Distinction) and a PhD in “Offshore Marine Renewable Energy Risk Governance”. He was a Senior Partner at AccendoJuris, a Nigerian based law firm but he now fully committed to teaching and research. As an Energy Law Lecturer at the University of Aberdeen, he has contributed to teaching a range of both on-campus and distance-learning courses like Petroleum Resource Governance, Energy Law, Oil and Gas Contracting, Oil and Gas Enterprise Management, Ocean and Society, Decommissioning of Offshore Installations (Regulatory and Commercial Aspects), Low Carbon Energy Transition (Renewable Energy Law) and Alternative Methods to Dispute Resolution.

His research interests include, risk governance, petroleum and natural resource governance, regulatory theories in high-major risk industries, decommissioning and clean energy regulation. He is a member of the Nigerian Bar Association and Society of Legal Scholars. He also is an Associate Fellow of  the Higher Education Academy and the Director of the African Natural Resource and Energy Law Network (ANRELN).
