A young private legal practitioner, she was called to the bar after successfully graduating from the Ghana School of Law with a BL Qualification. She obtained her LLB Qualification from the University of Ghana, Legon.

Prior to becoming a lawyer, Ms. Seidu pursued her passion, broadcasting, from her undergraduate days at the University of Ghana, where she studied Sociology and Political Science for her Bachelor of Arts Degree.

“I was born in the Upper West regional capital, Wa, where I spent my early years. I had a humble beginning as a member of a family that placed premium on humility and respect. My father was a respected person within the community and wouldn’t compromise on his children’s education for anything”, she revealed.

Nuhela attended Aggrey Memorial Senior High School in Cape Coast where she served as the Studies Prefect in her final year. It was during her senior high school education when she discovered her passion for broadcasting.

After senior high school, she got admission into the University of Ghana for her first degree. There, she got involved in several extra-curricular activities which included broadcasting – radio and television.

I served as a mentor to several of them who I kept contact with in order to guide them”.

About Law Express, she said “the main motivation for introducing this initiative was my personal philosophy in life. We have witnessed a growing number of people resorting to wrong ways of resolving issues due to ignorance and sometimes a perception that the legal system is expensive. It was important to sensitize the citizenry about their rights and how the laws operates”.
