Joseph Odeleye Fadahunsi, KBE (1901 – 12 May 1986) was a Nigerian businessman and politician who was a vice president of the National Council of Nigeria and the Cameroons. He also represented the Ilesha district in the House of Assembly during the nation's first republic, and subsequently served as the Governor of the Western Region of Nigeria.

Business career

Fadahunsi started work as a teacher at a government assisted school in Ilesha before he left teaching to become a produce buyer. He became a buyer under the United Trading Company, a branch of the Swiss Lutheran Church's missionary association, the Basle Mission. He started his business buying cocoa from farmers and hiring transporters to deliver the produce to the Ibadan office of the United Trading Company. He then earned enough profits to buy his own transport vehicles and his enterprise soon expanded into the transport sector.
