Born in 1951 to the family of Jerome Olijo - a local farmer and a politician, he had the first phase of his primary education at St. Paul's Catholic School, Umuopu and later migrated to St. Mary's Catholic School Arji as there was no Primary Five and Six in his village by then.
His secondary education took him to St. Peter's Secondary School, Achina in Aguata, Anambra State.
