OJA was honoured for his outstanding innovative and creative representative leadership to his constituents, according to Wale JUNAID (WJ), his Senior Legislative Aide, in a release made available to newsmen in Abeokuta on Monday.  

Ethicist (Prince) Salih Musa Yakubu, the Executive Director/CEO of the centre while making his presentation before handing over the award to Hon. Olaifa said among other things that despite being a first-time member of the parliament, the consummate politician has shown capacity in leadership.

"Our whistle blowers visited your state and submitted an impressive report about your performances which rated you amongst the top 3 Reps from your state that scaled through our leadership integrity test and qualified to be enlisted amongst top 100 highly rated most ethically responsible Reps. You scored 77 to ranked 2nd from your state, 10th in South - West Zone and 26th amongst the top 100 that met our ethical standard in 10 thematic areas”.

“You have instilled fiscal discipline and accountable leadership since your coming onboard and despite the paucity of funds and pockets of attack on your personality, you remain strong and committed to the course of your people and massively reducing poverty and contributing to reducing hunger and diseases via strategic empowerment programmes for your people.

“We pray that you never derail in your quest to do more for your own people despite some pockets of opposition against your leadership. You have written your name bold in our history book as one who has shown enough capacity in leadership of our Country," he said.

In his remarks, Hon Olaifa expressed his profound gratitude to the Centre for the undercover assessment of his performance, projects and programmes both executed and ongoing in his Federal Constituency, and his business unusual to representation and politics.
