Daniel Wales

Daniel Wales was born in Ibadan, Oyo state, Nigeria but has lived most of his years in Ogun and Lagos state. The first of five children, he was raised in a God-fearing family, with parents who pushed their children to be the best version of themselves.

Wales had his primary education in UNIQUE Model School, Ibadan and attended PERISCOPE International College, Ibadan before transferring to the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in BANKING & FINANCE.

Wales had a normal childhood but was not the regular average child; from a tender age, a gentle, easy-going Daniel had set goals for himself —he had the dream of becoming the youngest black World Bank president— and looked up to the likes of then Central Bank of Nigeria governor, Charles Chukwuma Soludo.

He developed a passion for figures from his teenage years and had a flair for subjects like Economics, Commerce and Accounting; setting academic records in the aforementioned subjects in his senior year in high school.

Surprisingly, Wales’ flair for figures didn’t extend towards Mathematics. A promising young lad, he also engaged in sports and was even the Commissioner for Sports in high school.
