Past Treasurer of ICOMAA-NA

In her shared profile, Dr. Adeola Jaiyeola gives glory to God and thanks Him for enabling her to be a blessing to her alma mater and give back. She identifies first as a servant of the living God in Whom we live, move, and have our being. She currently serves as a volunteer prayer minister at Eagle Mountain International Church, Fort Worth, Texas, USA. Additionally, she is the CEO of Abundant Enterprise Healthcare. As one of the distinguished alumni of Ibadan College of Medicine, she was an inaugural officer of the ICOMAA-NA and held the position of treasurer for over 15 years. She was dubbed the “lifetime” treasurer because of her consistency and commitment to achieving the goals of the association.

Dr. Adeola Jaiyeola graduated in 1982, completed her rotating internship at UCH in 1983, and National Youth Service in 1984, after which she embarked on her training in Preventive and Social Medicine at UCH. She had a vision of teaching and empowering people to live a healthy lifestyle rather than providing sickness care. In 1986, Dr. Jaiyeola moved with her family to Canada, where she continued her Community Medicine training, earned a master’s degree in Epidemiology, and became a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in Canada. She then served as a Regional Community Medicine Specialist for Health Canada.

After answering the call of God into the ministry, Dr. Jaiyeola and her family moved to the United States, where she continued her public health career as a Research Epidemiologist and Director of the Epidemiology Department while doing ministry work. She eventually assumed the role of Medical Director for Parkland Hospital Center for Clinical Innovation, where she and her team were awarded several research grants to integrate technology into chronic disease management to improve patient outcomes. Dr. Jaiyeola retired from her position in 2019 and was led to start Abundant Enterprise Healthcare, a company that provides recovery management to people with serious mental illnesses.

The donation was given in honour of God, who richly gives all things to enjoy (1 Timothy 6:17b), and her parents Mr. J.F. and Mrs. B.F. Ayoade, who encouraged her interest in studying medicine and supported her medical education.


The biography of Dr. Jaiyeola’s parents, Prince J.F. Ayoade, is included in various publications in Nigeria, one of which is titled The Makers, Shapers, Movers & Shakers of Nigeria. Prince J.F. Ayoade, B.Sc., Economist, Chartered Accountant & Administrator, was born on 22nd September 1931. He started his education at Owu Baptist Day School, Abeokuta, then attended Baptist Boys High School, and later the School of Agriculture, before travelling abroad to study at Bradford Institute of Technology. He returned to Nigeria to serve as a Chartered Accountant with various government bodies and educational institutions, including serving as the Deputy Bursar at The University of Ibadan. His last office was the Director of Ogun State Industrial & Finance Corporation. Due to his passion for leaving a legacy in accountancy and finance for the coming generation, he also served as a volunteer lecturer at Ogun State Polytechnic (now Moshood Abiola Polytechnic), where he was fondly called ‘Baba Taxation’! He wrote a book on taxation titled Nigerian Companies Income Tax — A Problem Approach in the Course of Production (Ibadan, Vita Books, 1988). By his side was Dr. Jaiyeola’s mother, Mrs. Beatrice Funmike Ayoade, who was born on March 13, 1933, and was a professional Secretary/Personal Assistant to several Directors in various government parastatals at the Western region, University of Ibadan, and Ogun State.

They both loved serving in the House of God. Two churches started from their home, both in Ibadan and in Abeokuta, and they served as treasurer in some Baptist Churches and the Nigerian Baptist Convention before they both passed into glory. They raised their children to value dedication to God, education, service, good character, and professionalism with excellence.
