It all started when he was in high school. Adah Geoffrey Edache had developed a liking for reading newspapers and the international stories seemed to get his attention more than anything. So he decided that he would pursue his curiosity in international affairs as soon as he got the chance. Throughout his university days, he was on the lookout for a job that will bring him closer to his interests in foreign affairs. In 1983, at age 24, he got a job at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
