In 1987, he was employed by the Nigeria Labour Congress and from where he had meritoriously served without break, generations of leadership of the Congress.
Olaewe obtained a National Diploma in Public Administration from the Federal Polytechnic, Nassarawa in 2005 and a Higher National Diploma (HND) in Business Administration from the same institution in 2011.
