While the youthful Ondo State-born, Dr. Kayode Ajulo is working hard to earn a living from his legal practice, his passion for equity pushed him to activism. He pursued worthy courses even as he got involved in partisan politics. Evidently, the influential dude has become notable in all he got himself engaged in.
Ajulo, as a legal practitioner sits atop a flourishing law firm with international contacts through which he handles notable briefs for individuals, private and public agencies. Also, Ajulo has been able to take his activism to an enviable height through his non-governmental organisation, Egalitarian Mission Africa.The lawyer has also completed his doctoral research on Corporate Social Responsibility and Social Justice.
It is also on record that highly-cerebral Ajulo is a top political player. Though, he threw in the towel as the National Secretary of the Labour Party a year ago to face his profession, as well as his campaign for social justice and equity, it is important to note that Ajulo has been at the receiving end of talks from various quarters that he has become a darling of a certain political party wooing him with the aim of fielding him as a candidate for the Ondo North Senatorial zone as he did six years ago.
On the heels of this invitation came a well-deserved and timely award of ‘Ondo State Advocate of the Year’ bestowed on him at a ceremony held in Akure, Ondo State recently. At the ceremony tagged, ‘Ondo State Man of The Year Award’, a visibly-elated Ajulo was presented with the honour by Prof. Christopher Aboluwoye of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State.
The state governor, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu, who graced the occasion in person where other illustrious Ondo State citizens including Dr. Tunji Abayomi, Rt. Honorable Victor Olabimtan and Hon. Kolawole Babatunde were decorated, specifically commended Ajulo on his advocacy and dedication to the people’s causes.
Born into a humble family with its head was a renowned book seller and the mother a seamstress, little Kayode Ajulo sure had many books to read but beyond that, he was inspired by notable intellectuals who patronised his father’s store. He eventually settled for the noble profession of Law which he studied at the University of Jos and has made a success of the choice.
