    She is a HOD not a CEO.

      Oga Deji, se na bif? You must be an insider to assume that. But i beg to disagree. The Foundation is to be separate from the company and not a department in the company. And she’s the head of the foundation, kapish!!!!

      Good job Mrs Adegoke!!!

    I felt like she was overly concerned with sounding intelligent than actually being intelligent.

    Your comment is tasteless to say the least. How exactly does this serve for a meaningful comment? I doubt you’ve ever had any direct engagement with the lady in question… learn to be kind with your words, please. She has done well for a lady under 40 in a hostile environment like ours! That’s something worth appreciating.

    Being a development professional myself, it’s evident she’s very knowledgeable about her field.

      Hello Chetanna,
      I am looking to get into development but I am not really looking at the aid and charity side of things, I am currently studying mathematical economics and statistics degree and looking more into the policy and economic aspect of development, how do i go about this Internships etc) or do you have any sites or journals that could provide more information.
