Amosun lived up to his status as a Distinguished Senator by amplifying the voice of the masses. He moved several motions and sponsored many bills on issues that touched on the day-to-day lives of not only members of his immediate constituency, but also Ogun State and the nation in general.
He was particularly instrumental to some of the landmark reforms of the era, especially in telecommunications, customs and excise and other strategic sectors of the Nigerian Economy. Some of these bills include:
Local Content Solid Minerals Development Bill, 2005
Fire Service Commission (Establishment) Bill, 2005
Income Tax Relief Bill for Sports Development, 2005.
First Avenue in Ibara Housing Estate
In the year 2007, he contested for governorship but was unsuccessful. He joined the race again in the year 2011 and was elected under the platform of Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN).
SIA believes that the provision of amenities and social development cannot be left to government alone. He therefore instituted a scholarship scheme in 1986, several years before venturing into politics, which he later institutionalized by setting up the Senator Ibikunle Amosun Scholarship Foundation (SIASF) on Thursday, 7 July 2005. He has awarded scholarships to over 1,000 students of Ogun State origin, in various institutions of higher learning. A consummate philanthropist, Senator Amosun’s generosity and quest to uplift others transcend the award of scholarships.
He has instituted various other subsisting empowerment initiatives for trade groups, artisans, communities, women and other vulnerable groups in the society. His Alma Maters – African Church Grammar School, Abeokuta and Ogun State Polytechnic (now Moshood Abiola Polytechnic), also in Abeokuta – have benefited from his generous disposition to give back to the society. He built and commissioned the Administrative Block at African Church Grammar School, among other similar gestures.
