Babajide Odusolu is an innovative entrepreneur with a strong creative flair, analytical drive and a passionate focus on evolution of successful indigenous enterprises. He founded Legacy Realities Ltd and Legacy Holdings Ltd in 1997 & 2001 respectively and acted as Chief Executive Officer and Project Coordinator until his appointment as Special Adviser to the immediate past Governor of Ogun State and Managing Director of OPIC.
Between 2013 - 2019 as a key member of the Ogun State Housing Team and concurrently Managing director of Ogun State Property Investment Corporation (OPIC), he championed OPIC's total turnaround and led the development of several award winning projects such as MTR Gardens, Isheri, New Makun City, Lagos Ibadan Expressway, development of Mitros Residences Boutique Hotel in abeokuta and overhaul of the internal primary infrastructure at OPIC Agbara / Igbesa Industrial Estate. By the end of his stint, OPIC had become re established as a major leader in the Nigerian Real Estate Sector. These achievements have further burnished his reputation as a major change agent. Babajide returned to the private sector in May 2019 with a renewed vigor and drive to aid the continued growth of the Nigerian real estate development sector.
