After his father’s unsuccessful re-election bid in 2011, Olamiju remained deeply committed to politics and garnered widespread popularity, particularly in Oyo State and Ogbomoso. This dedication ultimately led to his appointment as the Caretaker Chairman of Ogbomoso North Local Government by the Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi.
