Nurudeen, who hails from Belemure Compound, Isale-Ijebu in Ibadan, Oyo State, is a graduate of Computer Science from the University of Ibadan. Before the commencement of his Masters programme, Nurudeen was a business software developer with three years working experience in business computing industry in Nigeria.

Encomiums have, however, continued to be showered on Nurudeen from various quarters on his achievement. According to the Director of Studies of the School of Computing and Technology, Dr. Vicky Bush, “Bakare was not only a committed student but he also played an important role within his course by acting as a student representative. He contributed in class, worked hard and was a pleasure to have on the course.”
Nurudeen had his primary school education at Public Day School, Elekuro, Ibadan, between 1986 and 1992. He later attended Adekile Goodwill Grammar School, Ibadan for his secondary school education between 1992 and 1998. He had a National Diploma from Federal Polytechnic Ede, Osun State in 2003, and his bachelor degree from the University of Ibadan in 2007.
In an online chat with The Guardian, Nurudeen mentioned that his role model in the computing industry is the late co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Apple Inc, Steve Jobs. On his future plans, he hopes to continue to develop his career in e-business and business computing with focus on e-Banking, ERP and CRM.
