Born on April 30, 1949, in Isale Eko area of Lagos State to a civil servant father and a mother who was a nurse, Simplice began her academic career with Araromi Baptist School, Moloney, Lagos before proceeding to Methodist Girls High School, Lagos and Premier Grammar School, Abeokuta.

She later proceeded to Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria where she bagged BSc in Economics. She also bagged a Diploma in French in 1972 at Alliance Francais, Lagos.

Simplice was at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) after completing her Higher School Certificate. She did her service year at the Lagos State Ministry of Commerce and Industry.

Simplice started her training in accountancy with A B Alabi & Co/Alabi Bakoh Ekudare & Co (Chattered Accountants and Secretaries). She thereafter got employed as an Assistant Accountant at Transcontinental Fisheries Ltd, Lagos.

In August 1982, the new CITN president began her tax career with the Federal Inland Revenue Service and retired after 27 years of service. She was said to have been given contract appointment as Head, Channel Management of the Corporate Communication Department, FIRS in 2009 due to “diligence during her service years”.

Since 1982, Simplice is reputed to have played numerous supportive roles in the development of CITN, all of which eventually counted for her emergence as the 14th president of the institute.
