Yinka Ajibola graduated from University of Ile Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University), Nigeria, in 1976.
Her experience over the years in senior management positions in Lever Brothers Nigeria Limited (now Unilever), Rank Xerox Nig Ltd, Continental Pharmaceutical Limited, International Paints West Africa Ltd and Afriko West Africa Limited (a photographic and graphic trading outfit), greatly equipped her for many future assignments she subsequently carried out.
She later set up her own Consultancy and Trading Company, Double Q Ltd. Double Q Ltd specialized in operations planning and developing computerized models for production, sales and marketing operations for medium sized organizations. Double Q Ltd was also involved in various trading operations which included import and sales of printing, photographic and graphic products, export and sales of cassava chips.
Her passion for service was brought to fore between 1994 and 2002 as the Executive Secretary, Christ Against Drug Abuse Ministry (CADAM), a volunteer position in a Non Governmental Organization involved in treatment and rehabilitation of drug dependent persons. She was responsible for sourcing funds for the operations of the NGO from donor agencies, religious, public and private organizations; planning and managing the operations of the existing 2 Treatment and Rehabilitation Centers and also responsible for managing the finances and the Vocational center of the ministry.
In 2002, Yinka moved to Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria to set up Gilgal Education, an educational institution that prepares student for undergraduate and postgraduate studies in USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Europe, United Arab Emirates, Malaysia and other parts of the world. She is currently the Coordinator of Gilgal Education.
Our unique learning culture at Gilgal Education Foundation bridges the gap between the arts and sciences and adds an “international sense of hospitality”, thus preparing you for a vibrant career in the International stage
Different life experiences have allowed each student to develop an individual set of personal and professional competencies. In all our academic programmes we develop these existing personal and professional competences and introduce others to create a vibrant profile that opens up unique career opportunities either at home or abroad.
Because backgrounds vary, the perspective for the future will also vary. Some students, perhaps career climbers, will be focused on a specific subjects or entrepreneurial area; others, like career changers, will be exploring the breadth of options available overseas. Our programme is designed to be the common catalysts to help each of you develop the skills, hard and soft, which you will need for the next educational or professional step.
We know that you are at a turning point in your life and we are offering you a journey of intense discovery. What we try to do is give you the range: you will explore areas that you might not be naturally drawn to.
The valuable business partnerships we have and the world wide reference in the education sector will help you select and direct your career choices, while learning from professors and specialist that have both academic experience and business acumen.
