A PhD student withdrawn from Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria has become the first Nigerian appointed associate editor of the Risk.Net Journal.
Jamilu Adamu’s certificate was allegedly withdrawn after he petitioned the Independent Corrupt Practices And Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC over a lecturer.
It was gathered that the mathematics science student’s admission was terminated after he refused to include the name of his supervisor as co-author in a paper his supervisor did not contribute to.
He was later removed from the school programme in 2015, the second year of his studies, on ground that he didn’t pay his second-year fees before the 10th May, 2015.
“At that period, I was intimidated, harassed and threatened by my supervisor,” he explained.
Now he is associate editor of Risk.Net, alongside the 2003 Nobel Prize winner in Economics, Robert Eagle and the 1984 Laureate, Edward Altman, once named “one of 100 influential people in finance”
Adamu is currently a reviewer of the Journal of Operation Risk and Journal of Financial Market Infrastructures of Risk.Net journals, a leading source of exclusive, in-depth news and analysis on Risk Management, Derivatives and Complex finance.
Adamu is a world-renowned expert in credit risk modelling, stochastic asset and derivatives stress testing models.
