Dr. Morni has a Chartered Institute of Transport (CIT) qualification as well as the Advanced Diploma in Transport Studies from the University of London. He went on to Scotland to do the MBA from Stirling University. His last achievement is by completing his Ph.D in Entrepreneurship from Stirling University, Scotland in 1990.

Dr. Morni's career started as a Marketing Executive for PETRONAS in 1981 and he resigned in 1984 to start his own business, Nexus Trading House which deals with the import of sawn timber from Indonesia for sale to the local market. At the same time he was running his business, he was also engaged as contract lecturer with UiTM until he stopped lecturing in UiTM in 1987 to go to Stirling, Scotland, to further his studies.

After completing his MBA and Ph.D in Scotland, Dr. Morni joined the Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) for a few months before he was seconded to the Chief Minister's Office as the Principal Administrative Officer for 2 years until 1993. He then returned to SEDC to assume the post of Director of the BCIC Division.

Between June 1994 and December 1995 Dr. Morni was engaged as consultant to the Philippine Government. His main task was to research on the economic development parameters for a project called Enterprise Development of the Muslim Minority Areas of Southern Philippines. This project was funded by the U.S Government (USAID) under the GEM Project and parked under the then Presidential Advisor to the President for Mindanao, Mr. Paul Dominguez. Part of the findings of the research was later used by the Philippine Government in its peace negotiations with the MORO Liberation Front under Nur Misuari in 1996.
