Her rich vein of form also helped the Super Falcons to overcome Cote D’Ivoire in the final qualifying game for the African Women Cup of Nations.
Ajibade’s Atletico Femenino currently sit fourth in the Spanish Primera Division with 42 points, twenty-four points behind table toppers, Barcelona. Her rising stock has seen her turn her form around this season and staked a greater claim for a place in the team.
The Super Falcons Star signed a new three-year deal extending her stay with the club in January.
A Player of the Month award win may be the perfect icing on the cake in a month that saw her shine.
