H on. Abdulwasi Musah was born to the Royal family of Kosalapata, Iji-Latubi Ruling House of Saki in the 70s.

He started his Education at the Kigera Z.E.B. Primary School, New Bussa and thereafter had a stint at the Government Secondary School, Dogon-gari, both in Niger State, before proceeding to Asabari Grammar School, Saki, Oyo State, where he had his School Certificate with impressive A-grades in all his subjects.

Abdulwasi, thereafter, went to the prestigious St. Andrew’s College of Education, Oyo and graduated with Merit Pass in his NCE Programme.

The quest for further education took him to the Great Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, where he obtained his LL.B degree with a whopping 4.48 CGPA of a total 5.00 point.

The pursuit for more knowledge then took him to the Nigerian Law School, Abuja, where he bagged his Second Class (Upper) Bachelor of Laws degree and was called to the Nigerian Bar as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

Having worked for some years as Commercial Lawyer in Lagos, Abdulwasi proceeded to the University of Lagos, Akoka, where he was awarded a Master degree in Law, LL.M in 2013. He is currently undergoing his PhD degree in Law in the University of Ibadan.

He started his legal career with the Kola Awodein, SAN & Co. at No. 8/10, Marina (UBA House), Lagos as a Junior Associate.

He, thereafter, joined Paul Usoro, SAN & Co. at Oyin Jolayemi Street, Victoria Island, Lagos as an Associate before pitching his tent with Olufunke Aboyade, SAN & Co where he worked as a Senior Associate.

The zeal to serve humanity and contribute to the socio-economic life of Saki people in particular and the Oyo state in general influenced his voyage into politics in 2014 and he took the bull by the horn by contesting for a seat in the Oyo State House of Assembly.

To the glory of God, Abdulwasi defeated other parties’ candidates in the keenly contested election and upon the inauguration of the 8th Oyo State House of Assembly in June, he won the coveted seat of the Deputy Speaker, a position which enables him to influence and sponsor life changing-bills and motions as well as legislating for grassroots development.
