Dr. Ayoade Folashade Arike
Secretary to the State Government
Mrs. Ayoade was, until her appointment as SSG, a Deputy Director in the Chemical Evaluation and Research Directorate of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC).
She began her career as a Regulatory officer and later rose to the rank of a Chief Regulatory Officer in the NAFDAC Laboratory Services Directorate where she garnered lots of professional experiences, before she was then transferred to Chemical Evaluation & Research directorate of the Agency.
She has held so many positions in her career in NAFDAC and member of some relevant professional bodies. She equally led so many staff groups for inspections on Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) both locally and internationally.
Her appointment is a clear example of ‘putting a round peg in a round hole’. She is happily married and blessed with children.
