He was selected from the State from among thousands of candidates as a result of his excellent WAEC results. Baba J Adamu had the option to go to the USA, Italy or Germany, but he was reluctant to go abroad for studies because he wanted to join the Nigeria army. He later decided to go and left to study civil engineering in Poland in Sept 1986.

Baba J Adamu and his friend Garba Abubakar (who was his class mate in the primary school and also his classmate at the Kaduna Polytechnic) wanted to go the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA). It was his late uncle popularly called "Kawu" that finally advised and pushed him to accept and go abroad. By the time he decided to agree, the countries that were available were Bulgaria, Poland and Russia, so Baba J Adamu decided to go to Poland. He left on the 6th of Sept 1986 to Poland to commence the language school in Lodz, while his friend Garba Abubakar (currently Navy Commodore) went to the Naval College Onura, in Port-Harcourt, In Poland, Baba Adamu spent the first 12 months in the Lodz language school before proceeding to Wroclaw to commence studies at the Wroclaw University of Technology. He excelled in his class and always took early exams (reserved for excellent students), and he was the only foreigner in the department. He went on to become one of the best student and completed his master's degree in civil engineering with first class in 1993. He then moved to London, UK but 3 months later, he was called back by the same university on a Polish Government for a scholarship to do his doctorate degree (PhD) in Industrial research.

"Where despair and hopelessness exist, those who have the ability to take action have the moral responsibility to take action to help those who live on the bare edge of survival.  And democracy is more than the creed of our country, it is the inborn hope of our humanity, an ideal we must carry, a trust we must bear and pass along. And even after all these years, we have a long way yet to travel, that is why we must all be involved ..."  - Baba J Adamu

 

FUTURE OF ICT IN NIGERIA
"Today, Nigerian ICT sector is at the cross roads. The direction we choose will determine not just our future but also the legacy we leave behind for future generations of knowledge workers in this country, who have the creativity to dream impossible dreams and the determination to translate those dreams into reality"...
- Baba J Adamu

“Given the emergence of new regional dynamics in development policy and practice, Arewa region MUST fine-tune current regional development perspectives and to develop new ones that are not only more in sync with the present and future global context but with the governance systems being currently adopted that are becoming more and more decentralized and grassroots oriented. States Governors within the Arewa region must come together to create and adopt the Arewa Regional Economic Plan with emphasis on a balanced approach to development and opportunity for all diversity irrespective of one’s tribe, social class, religious belief and even political affiliation; and establish targets for economic growth of the entire region taking advantage of our Demographic Shifts, which will fuel the growth of new sectors, markets, and service lines in our communities. The ability of our diversity to build strength and unity is the power that will propel the region and consequently, the Nigerian industry, into new dimensions of performance and inclusive growth. Catalyzing Inclusive Growth Through ICT-enabled solutions in healthcare, education, financial services and public services can drive socio-economic development and inclusion of more than 30 million citizens each year, faster, cheaper and more effectively than traditional models. The economic plan should be built on current regional opportunities, collaboration and innovation linking States macroeconomic models with regional development and economic plan termed: Regional Econometric Model”President ACRD
