Hon. Kazzim stated this at an interactive session with newsmen at his residence, in Abeokuta, the ogun state capital on Saturday.
He noted that despite being out of political office for four years, he is bold to say he has touched the lives of the constituents more than the incumbent, adding that his track records, educational background and experience put him in good stead for the job.
A graduate of Stirling University, United Kingdom, Hon. Micky Kazzim bears it all, saying that his sojourn to the 8th assembly has further proven doubters wrong that representation goes beyond legislation.
Reeling out his achievements during the 8th Assembly where he represented Abeokuta North/Obafemi Owode and Odeda federal constituency, Kazzim stated that his coming to Abeokuta South is to further spread development to his maternal constituency.
He added that his crossing to Abeokuta South is by popular interest cum homecoming to promote better legislation, more infrastructural growth, even development, equal distribution of wealth and youth engagement to his maternal background.
As a proof of his desire to better and make an effective push for a facelift in the plight of the constituents in Abeokuta South, Hon. Micky Kazzim has facilitated the approval, construction and commissioning of notable life changing projects distributed across different locations within Abeokuta South Federal constituency.
In the area of Youth Development, six (6) different primary schools, with their respective classroom buildings were constructed, renovated, commissioned and are already in use for children within Abeokuta South Federal constituency.
These projects were premised on the belief that, today’s children taught in a conducive, clean and fully equipped learning environment will definitely become good and reliable future leaders, we had always dreamt of.
Hon. Kazzim also facilitated the construction of eleven (11) classrooms in Our Lady of the Lords Primary School, Onikoko, Abeokuta. Also at the Methodist Primary School, Imo, Oke-yeke, Abeokuta, six (6) brand new classrooms were constructed plus fully rennovated ten (10) old dilapidated classrooms to make learning easy and conducive.

“In furtherance of Hon. Micky Kazzim’s Community Infrastructural Development programs, Micky shocked Abeokuta South Zonal CDC by donating and handing-over to them, two (2) units of 500 KVA/11 KVA transformers to the zone.
The transformers have since been taken to Oke-Aregba and Abiola Way communities, who have been in total darkness for about 2 years.
As part of his community infrastructural development strides, Hon. Kazzim identified the constant scarcity of portable water in Abeokuta South Federal Constituency.

On Youth Empowerment and Poverty Alleviation, Hon. Micky Kazzim has distributed twenty-five (25) POS Kiosks to empower youths who are involve in POS business, but has always been sitting under umbrellas. This is to prevent direct impact of the sunlight and provide a lockable facility useful not for POS withdrawal or payment businesses only, but also a shop for other petty trading activities.
He therefore call on all voters in Abeokuta South Federal Constituency to elect him to represent the constituency at the National Assembly, on the platform of Allied Peoples Movement (APM).
