According to Olayiwola, “To mark my 55th birthday,a dummy cheque of N500,000 was presented to the management of New State High School ably led by Mrs Atilade Oyeronke, other staff and students of the school as payment for their school fees. The cash has actually been paid,” he disclosed.
The lawmaker was joined to celebrate his electoral victory by the Executive Chairman, Mushin Local Government Area, Mr Emmanuel Bamgboye and all executive members of the council including all Councillors.
In his speech at the event, Olayiwola eulogised the significant roles played by the party members and leaders of Mushin APC in making him victorious at the polls, saying that the people of his constituency own the victory.
He explained that all groups existing in the party showed that APC was a party of victors in the last elections, saying the trust the people of the constituency have in him would not be betrayed.
“I have always carrying along my constituents by empowering them, lobbying employment slots for them and facilitate projects to the constituency. I will continue to do more and they should expect more empowerment programmes from me as I continue to represent their interest at the House of Assembly,” said Olayiwola.

At 55, I have passed through a lot before getting to where I am. I have seen the good and the bad but with perseverance, hardwork and prayers, I scaled through life hurdles,” said Olayiwola.
