Temple Oraeki

Temple has lived, worked and studied in various parts of Nigeria. His first degree was in Chemistry, which he obtained from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria in Northern Nigeria. He worked at a bank for a number of years, where his main clients were petroleum companies. Pollution of ground water by various organisations and the rampant shortages of clean water in every part of Nigeria he lived in drew his attention to the need for a strong voice to advocate for clean water, which is accessible for all in Nigeria.
