Ahead of the 2023 elections, a community leader and Stalwart of the Peoples' Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Toyin Amuzu, TA, has declared his intention to contest for the position of the House of Representatives, to represent Abeokuta South Federal Constituency at the National Assembly.

Since 2011, the seat has been occupied by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers - Hon.Segun Williams (2011 - 2019) and former chairman of Abeokuta South Local Government Area, Hon. Lanre Edun(2019 - till date), with a good number of the constituents claiming that their representations have been "largely remote and lackluster."

Chief Amuzu officially declared the intention to replace Hon. Edun come 2023 at his political root, in ward 8 Erunbe, Abeokuta, where his supporters and party loyalists came out enmasse to embrace him. 

The philanthropist expressed the confidence that Nigeria can be better with quality legislation and representation in the National Assembly and if we all decide to work together and elect worthy people to represent them at various elective and appointive political offfices.

He said: "having consulted across boards, with the massive support and encouragement of our people, leaders, family, friends and fans, I am putting myself forward to serve and put the people first while I contest to represent Abeokuta South Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, in Abuja come 2023."

The House of Representatives hopeful expressed concern that the nation is moving backwards, stressing that, "if given opportunity, he will Iegislate to improve on Education, Health, Economic Empowerment, rights of citizens, legal and Social statuses among other needs to improve the lives of the people." 

"One major move is to legislate on social security for the people. I will also recommend community services for minor crimes to decongest prisons," he added.
According to him, all these are anchored his desire to make meaningful impacts and developmental contributions to both humanity and  constituency as Nigeria tries to cover major flanks of Sustainable Development Goals.

The State Treasurer of the PDP, Alhaji Bola Taiwo who commended the aspirant for determination, urged the gathering to go out to register in the on-going Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, voters registration exercise in order to get Personal Voters Cards(PVCs). 

He said this is the only way by which they can vote in credible candidates like Chief Amuzu who has been doing well for both the people and various communities. 

The Chairman of the ward, Mr Segun Sodeinde, who was impressed with large turn-out of people, said, Amuzu is a great ambassador of the ward who hitherto has been supporting various communities with genuine intentions to better their lots.

He urged the people to support Chief Toyin Amuzu who has shown great leadership, selflessness, patriotism and love for the people.
