Adeyemi contested for the seat of Oyo Federal Constituency on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party in 2019 but lost the election to the incumbent at the time, Akeem Adeyemi, his brother fondly called Skimeh.

He was appointed by Governor Seyi Makinde as chairman of the Oyo State Local Government Pension Board in his first term.
