Our Leadership

ELAINE OLUWASEUN JABITTA

I work in program management for a multinational conglomerate and also have extensive experience in the public sector. I am passionate about social justice, the right of any group of people to self-determine, and youth development in Nigeria. When I am not working, you will find me reading, traveling, playing video games, and being terrible at playing the guitar.

IBUKUN OLUFON

I am a strong believer in “learning, unlearning and relearning”. Adopting this mindset will make Nigerian youths fulfill their infinite potential and build the Nigeria of our dreams.
I enjoy traveling, photography and I am a devoted Manchester United supporter.

I work in HR because what’s not to love about a job where you leave each day knowing that you helped at least one person! I am particularly passionate about helping people achieve their highest potential so naturally when the opportunity came to join Velocity’s leadership team, I welcomed it. I also love to cook (when I am in the mood), read books (especially historical romance), and practice Yoga!
