Wole’s educational journey began at Emmanuel Primary School in Ado Ekiti, where he commenced his primary education in 1970. In 1974, he gained admission to Christ School Ado Ekiti, and subsequently attended the Federal School of Arts and Science in Ondo, Ondo State, for his A-levels.

However, after a year, he secured admission to the University of Ilorin in 1980 to study Medicine. During his time at the university, Wole showcased his sporting talent by representing Ondo State in Badminton.

In 1986, Wole graduated from the University of Ilorin and completed his internship training at the State Hospital Akure from 1986 to 1987. He fulfilled his mandatory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) year by serving at the Neuro Psychiatric Hospital in Yaba, Lagos, in 1988.

Following his NYSC, Wole gained experience working at various healthcare institutions, including the Neuro Psychiatric Hospital Aro Abeokuta, the Comprehensive Health Centre Emure in Ekiti, and several private hospitals in Akure and Lagos.

In 1994, Wole established his first clinic, Bethany Clinic, in Agege Pen Cinema, Lagos, and later expanded with a second clinic in Iju-Agege. In 2001, he relocated the clinic to Abesan Estate in Ipaja, Lagos, where it operated until his departure for the United States of America.

Wole embarked on a new chapter in his life when he arrived in the United States in 2001. He pursued a residency program at Upstate University in Syracuse, New York, and became certified by the Canadian Medical Board. He subsequently practiced Rural Emergency Medicine in the Caribbean for three years before obtaining fellowship certification from the Australian Royal College in 2006.

In 2008, the government of Prince Edward Island in Canada invited Wole to work for them, leading to his relocation to PEI. However, he maintained strong ties with Australia, frequently traveling there throughout the year. In 2011, he made the decision to permanently settle in Australia, where he now owns his medical practice.

Despite his extensive international experience, Wole has always remained connected to his roots in Nigeria, particularly in Ekiti. Guided by the wisdom imparted by his grandfather, Chief Moses Ojo Oluyede, who emphasized the importance of independence, hard work, and focus, Wole has embarked on numerous successful business ventures both abroad and in Nigeria.

In 2012, Wole’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to venture into the hospitality industry. He chose to establish “Green Hills Hotel,” currently under construction along the Ikere-Ado Highway in Ikere Ekiti, as a testament to his commitment to the development and prosperity of Ekiti State.

Dr. Wole Oluyede’s journey has shaped him into a visionary leader dedicated to the progress and upliftment of Ekiti. His extensive experience in medicine, entrepreneurship, and international collaboration positions him as a competent and capable candidate to lead Ekiti South Senatorial District towards a brighter future.
