At the young age of 33, in 1983, he took a significant step in the political arena, becoming a member of the Ondo State House of Assembly under the Unity Party Nigeria (UPN). His passion for public service and his vision for a better Nigeria shone brightly, even in a challenging political landscape. Sadly, that democratic dispensation was cut short by overthrow of government by the Buhari regime, but his commitment to the people remained undiminished.
Before his foray into politics, late Hon. Peter Adeyemi Osowe had already made a name for himself as a Sales Manager with the foreign company, CFAO General Import, based in Ibadan, Oyo State. His success in the corporate world was a reflection of his tireless work ethic and innate business acumen.
As the CEO of SOW NIGERIA ENTERPRISES, he continued to lead and inspire, demonstrating his entrepreneurial prowess and dedication to progress. He was not just a businessman but a brilliant teacher who imparted wisdom to countless individuals who crossed his path.
Beyond his professional achievements, SOW as he was fondly called, had a deep connection to the land and embraced farming as a way to give back to his community. His tenure as a former board member of the Ondo State Agricultural Corporation showcased his commitment to the development of agriculture in the state.
