What is his POLITICAL MISSION?
Omooba Dotun Babayemi has chosen to evolve a re-engineering process in the politics of his country, with particular reference to his home State (Osun). He has a clear mission to effect enduring changes in the Governance of Osun State as such affects its economy, social integration indigenes and residents within its borders, security and welfare of the people and their political advancement. This is the platform or the parameter on which his bid for the governorship of Osun State is anchored.
The Governorship aspirant is not in the race as a fresh jumper in the politics of Osun State. He has been a visible player in the Osun West Senatorial District, since 2011.
He represents a CONTINUITY OF IDEAS….
His political endeavour is beyond adventurism, rather, his, is a mission to ensure enduring political and public oriented leadership that is humanist in all facets.
As a candidate for Osun West Senatorial District in 2019, He anchored his campaign manifesto on strategic solution delivery,through the maximization of human and financial resources, using enabling technology as a driver of development in diverse environments.
Although Dotun Babayemi could not realise his Senatorial ambition in 2019 in spite of his well thought out manifesto and demonstrated capacity to execute it, he however did nor allow it to derail him from synergizing with his constituents, to whom his development agenda is focused without political office and patronage, the upwardly mobile technocrat and business executive sustained a programme of action that culminated in a number of projects devoted to human welfare, empowerment and development with key focus on health and education. He is prepared to soldier on, and this time, on the highest executive seat in the administration of Osun State.
About His Health Initiative ALAAFIA DOTUN

HIS BID FOR BOLA IGE HOUSE
Dotun Babayemi’s political agenda is meant to encapsulate the dictum of He who the cap fits… and spell out its letter to the end “…Let him wear it…”
Dotun is determined to carry the gains of corporate experience and success thereof to the theatre of politics, public administration and governance.
By throwing his hat in the ring, the lawyer, technology professional, security expert and corporate financial strategist is sending a strong message to the world, especially those angling for the number one seat in Osun State that politics can, and should be determined by Nigerians who are prepared to use their God-given talents and resources in education, creativity, focus and commitment to succeed.
What made him what He is today?
Lets tell you a bit.Born a Prince-Royal, on 5th December 1966 to Dr Solomon and Ajoke Babayemi, his father was the 8th Olufi of Gbongan in Ayedaade Local Government Area of Osun state.
His royalty was a leadership training of some sort for a young man in search of a golden fleece.
With a parental background that exposed him to the allures, privileges, challenges and responsibilities of monarchy in a native Yoruba setting, Omooba Dotun BABAYEMI used the opportunities and obligations derivable from such a historical and cultural background to build a type of profile required for a successful private and public endeavours.
Life within and outside the palace unconsciously prepared the politician to
chart the path and cross the hurdles that laid along it for a successful landing.
