"He also attended Opencast Polytechnic, Auchi; an affiliate of Ambrose Alli University, Edo State and obtained his Higher National Diploma in marketing with “Distinction” in 1990. The young Simon who is never satisfied with education and knowledge acquisition later continued his academic pursuit with the Chartered Institute of Commerce of Nigeria for his Postgraduate Diploma programme in Marketing and Commercial Administration and graduated in 1993 and 2001 respectively".

"Dr. Sir Simon Nwafor later attended the Africa International Institute for Professional Training and Research, USA for a Postgraduate Diploma course in Human Resource Management, and came out in a flying colour in 2012.
