At a time when many believed that research is a world of public sector institutions and multinationals, one young man had a different view.
The man Njoku Peter Paul is a young entrepreneur in the area of research, career services and ICT. He discovered his passion for research way back 2010 as a fourth year student of the prestigious Federal University of Technology. He ventured into full scale data analysis, learning numerous statistical tools and packages.
This fire and love for research and sustainable advancement in education drove him to attend many trainings and workshops in the bid to solidify grounds as a data analyst.
While as a young project manager, he worked with group one dimension (G1D), an architectural consultancy firm with Central Bank of Nigeria, where he employed his knowledge of research and data analysis as a Project Planning and Control Assistant in reinventing the style of project progress reporting in Central Bank Branch Building Taraba State.
From Taraba state, he worked with Marcon Engineering Owerri, where he served as project/program planner and IT support staff. At Marcon, he introduce a new system of project planning which helped reduce the time of project delivery in most projects like the Goodluck Jonathan Ultra modern hostel at Michael Okpara University Umudike etc.
With a strong burning desire to impact his generation in the area of research and ICT, Njoku Peter Paul resigned from Marcon Engineering to float a Research centre in Owerri named The Saints Integrated Research Centre. The name as he fondly remembers is divinely inspired as he said the revelation came on 10th August 2014 while meditating inside the church.
With idea of research centre being a new thing in the city of Owerri, Njoku Peter Paul persisted by the help of grace by creating innovative services like hosting research trainings and seminars together with the partnership of a mentor , Engr Nwakanma Cosmas Ifeanyi, a man he so much honours.
Also with the unmatchable help of his family especially his mother, Mrs Maria Njoku , The Saints Integrated Services started making impact and registering its presence as an unbeatable centre in the area of statistical analysis, Corporate Branding and Image making, Market Research and Product Planning, ICT and Project Management.
As a graduate of Project Management, Njoku Peter Paul applies the tripartite structure of Project management in his entrepreneurial effort.
Current his outfit The Saints Integrated Services has trained over 25 students in ICT, over 15 lecturers and teachers in research, has handled over 80 researches in the area of data analysis and currently working on partnership with companies, institutions and state Governments in the area of Youth empowerment programs.

The man Njoku Peter Paul subscribes all achievements to God as he is a strong lover of God and a preacher of the Gospel.
