His prior work experience includes Assistant Lecturer at University of Benin, Edo State Government as Honourable Commissioner for Works and Transport, Member, Edo State Programme Implementation Review Committee on the UNDP-Assisted Programme on Natural Resources and Environment, and Chairman, Visitation Panel to Edo State Institute of Technology and Management. His research has focused on hydrobiology/fisheries studies, biodiversity survey and their applications in impact assessment and pollution studies. Dr. Ogbeibu has authored over 70 scientific publications in local and international journals and over 90 technical reports on EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) and general environmental studies. He has successfully supervised several MSc and PhD students. He serves as Report Reviewer and Project Leader/Principal Consultant to many oil service companies and Government Agencies, and as Research Adviser on Impact Assessment issues with Shell Petroleum Development Company. He works as Editorial Board member for many journals. His book on Biostatistics has become the most sought after indigenous textbook on Biostatistics in most Nigerian Universities and Research Institutes. He is currently Chairman, Organizing Committee for the Faculty of Life Sciences Lecture Series; Chairman, University of Benin Alumni Association Electoral Commission, and Chairman, University of Benin Staff Housing Renovation Committee inter alia.
