Sir Ajayi had his early education at Islamic Primary School, Epe where he schooled for three months and later enrolled into a primary school in 1937 and completed his primary education in Ode-Remo after-which authorities of the school engaged him to teach there due to his intelligence and excellent result.

Sir Ajayi is the author of a book entitled, Nigeria: Africa's Failed Asset.

The book, is a thoughtful, well researched and revealing account of the behind-the-scenes moves that led to the creation of Nigeria. The shaky foundation on which the nation is planted in reckless disregard of the settled principles of federalism leading inevitably to the quagmire in which Nigeria finds itself is thoroughly discussed.

Ajayi also offered a permanent solution to the seemingly insolvable problems plaguing the Nigerian state in his book.
