He is an author, literacy coach and a reading consultant living in Bukuru, Plateau State.

He graduated in 2008 from the College of Education, Gindiri and started teaching in 2009 as a classroom teacher. He managed a nursery/primary school as a head teacher and in addition taught Primary 1 for five (5) years from 2010-2014. Hosea is married to Noro and they have two sons.

In the few years of his teaching experience, he discovered that many Nigerian children were struggling with literacy. As a result many pupils/students cannot read or write with efficiency. This became a burden on him. In 2011, he met a Canadian in Jos, Marlene Wiebe, and later on an American, Adrienne Lillo, who were missionaries in Nigeria. Together, they developed a phonics curriculum (The Phonics READING Adventure [TPRA]) which was published in 2014 by ACTS Bookshop. He has been promoting the materials and training teachers within the schools that are using the curriculum. This is happening in several states in Nigeria.

In order to improve and develop his training skills, Hosea has completed his MA Early Childhood through University of Roehampton, London (UK).

On the 1st day of August 2019, The Phonics READING Adventure Africa Ltd was incorporated under the Companies and Allied Matters Act 1990 and the Company is Limited By Shares.
