ORIKI YEYE

Omo o da o igi poruku letegbe,
Omo e ku morikori ke joorunpagba iloko, Omo oloko kerin geere loya,

About Yeye Olufunke Mercy Sikunola Olajubu

Yeye Olufunke Mercy Sikunola Olajubu, (nee Ogunyebi) was born on Saturday 25th March 1967 to Pa Joel Babalola & Chief (Mrs) Florence Oyinlola Ogunyebi (Eyeloja of Oke Aiyedun), devout Methodists from Oke-Aiyedun, Ikole LGA, Ekiti State, Nigeria. She was the fourth born, and the first girl child of the family.
 
Yeye was the first baby born when the then Mercy Maternity Home in Ikole-Ekiti was opened. This informed the little girl being named Mercy, after the maternity home. She was privileged to see her day-old picture with the then Elekole of Ikole, Late HRM Oba Adetula Adeleye II.

The young Mercy attended the Methodist Primary School, Aiyedun-Ekiti between 1972 and 1977. She then proceeded to St. Mary's Anglican Girls Grammar School, Ikole Ekiti from 1978 to 1983. In 1984, her aunt - Mrs Jolaade Olofinboba and her husband Late Prof. M.O. Olofinboba took her to Ilorin where she was diligently mentored and groomed. Yeye thereafter lived with her uncle, Prof. J. Funso Olorunfemi and his family also in Ilorin.

She attended Queen Elizabeth School, Ilorin, Kwara State, and worked briefly at the Admissions office of the University of Ilorin, before gaining admission to the same University, the University of Ilorin, where she graduated in 1991 with B.A. (Hons) History and Masters in Public Administration in 2000. She has since completed the course-work towards the award of an M.A. in History, at the University of Abuja.

Yeye Olufunke's movement to Ilorin was ordained by God, because that was where she met her heart-throb, Asiwaju Oyedeji Olasunkanmi Olajubu, an Engineer, in 1986. They got married on the 3rd of October, 1992. The marriage is gracefully blessed with children.
 
Fondly known as Aunty Masi to many, Yeye was warm, generous, amiable and kind-hearted. She was very homely and enjoys having memorable experiences with her family, friends and loved ones.

Yeye was a dedicated Civil Servant with the Federal Character Commission and a member of the Nigeria Institute of Management. She rose to the position of a Deputy Director at the Federal Character Commission, where she was the head of the Ado-Ekiti Office of the Commission until her demise. She has persistently displayed commendable administrative prowess with courage and focus in and outside her call of duty.

She belongs to the rare generation of Nigerians who have carved an identity for themselves in their career as a result of hard work, determination, focus and the courage to succeed. A God-fearing woman, a supporting wife and a responsible mother with vision, who believes in the saying that the “Voice of the people is the Voice of God”.

She was an active member of the International Association of Lions Clubs, where she constantly served with a passion that is value centred, with an undying love for service to humanity, laced with impeccable character and dynamism.

She is an active member of Methodist Church Nigeria and a Lady of Sir Oyedeji Olajubu, a Knight of John Wesley. A woman of many parts, who has received merit awards from many reputable organisations in and outside Nigeria.
