Having conquered the oil and gas industry as well as the public service, Ronke Sokefun, perhaps for want of a new adventure, has found a way to plug into the boom the real estate business is currently experiencing.

The cerebral socialite has been tapped by Olawale Ayilara’s Landwey Investment Limited, a real estate company, to be the chairman of its board of directors. Ronke must have been convinced beyond reasonable doubts before agreeing to chair the board of Landwey Investments. Only last year, 34-year-old Ayilara was in the news over allegations of his company’s inability to deliver homes to individuals who already made down payments.

He however denied the allegations, insisting that his company was simply going through some challenges he referred to as the burden of construction in Nigeria. Recently, the company announced its latest project called Isimi Lagos, the first wellness technology-powered eco city which offers a serene space for both living and working, to its long- and short-term citizens and visitors. A humongous project no doubt, it will be a testament to Ronke’s acumen garnered over the years when the project is finally completed.

A trained lawyer who joined OANDO in 2002 after a legal career that spanned 12 years with both Ighodalo and Associates, a company secretarial firm and the prestigious firm of Aluko and Oyebode where she left as a partner, the mother of one rose through the ranks to become the Chief Legal Officer of Oando.

In 2011, she left for public service in Ogun State and proceeded to serve as a commissioner under Senator Ibikunie Amosun. In January 2019, she was appointed Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation where she still serves till date. Ronke used to be married to Gbenga Sokefun, the older brother to celebrity photographer, TY Bello until they both went their separate ways.
