Giwa DIPO OGUNLANA needs no introduction being the head (Giwa) of one of the largest socio-cultural age-grade groups in entire Ijebuland, known as Egbe Bobamayegun Okunrin Asiwaju Akile Ijebu. It’s a testament to his capacity and public acceptance. By every standard, Giwa Dipo Oladipupo is an accomplished businessman. A man of great taste. A classy, kind-hearted, good-natured, humble, friendly, stylish and polished socialite.
In my previous article about him, I mentioned being of noble birth and origin is not as good as self discipline and rebirthing oneself into worthy individual which best summarized his person. But Giwa Dipo didn’t attain the enviable height overnight. A lot went on before Saul became Paul..
Born this 28th day of January about 47 years ago in Ijebu ode. He attended Ijebu Ode Grammar School and thereafter the Ogun State University (now Olabisi Onabanjo University) Ago Iwoye.
He had a successful Banking career of over 10 years starting with the Corporate Banking Sector of the United Bank of Africa and he voluntarily resigned as a Manager and Head, Transactional Banking Group, Corporate Banking Sector of the Stanbic IBTC bank in 2010 to start his private business. Giwa Oladipupo Ogunlana holds a Masters’ degree in Business Administration (MBA) and also several globally recognised professional certifications in Governance, Risks & Compliance among which is the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), Certified Information Security Manager ( CISM), Certified in Risk & Information Systems Control ( CRISC).
Giwa is the CEO of Davisol Global Investments Nig. Ltd and the Platinum Healthcare Services LLC, USA. He was unanimously appointed the Giwa Egbe Bobamayegun Okunrin Asiwaju Akile Ijebu in 2017.
Today, 28th of January 2023 is yet another day to celebrate this iconic figure whose mantra is centered around making whoever crosses his path happy and whose contribution to mankind on a grander scale will remain indelible. On behalf of the entire Metropolitan Mirror team and my humble self, I wish our own Giwa Dipo Ogunlana a happy birthday and many more fruitful years ahead.
