He has also been commended by major stakeholders in Osogbo/Olorunda/Irepodun/Orolu Federal Constituency for prioritizing human empowerment and support for small-scale businesses. Youths, women, and petty traders have benefited immensely from various economic empowerment schemes sponsored by the former federal legislator.

Through these achievements, Oyewo has now set a remarkable record in the number of projects initiated by any political representative in the history of the territory.

Hon. Olubukola Oyewo is a staunch supporter of President Bola Tinubu and an advocate of a truly united Osun APC.
