During the return to democracy in 1999 with the Nigerian Fourth Republic, Solomon was elected chairman of Mushin Local Government Area of Lagos State on the Alliance for Democracy (AD) platform. In 2003 he was a contender to be Alliance For Democracy (AD) Senate candidate for Lagos West, but was defeated by the incumbent senator Tokunbo Afikuyomi. 

His supporters greeted the primary results with violence, and governor Bola Tinubu was unable to leave the scene of the vote for several hours as the mob battled with police outside and other electoral observers. Solomon ran instead for the federal House of Assembly for Mushin Federal Constituency 1 and was elected.

In April 2007, Solomon was elected to the Senate on the Action Congress (AC) platform for the Lagos West constituency. After taking his seat in the Senate, he was appointed to committees on Works, Sports, Rules & Business, Integration & Cooperation and Capital Markets (Chairman).

He was appointed chairman of the Senate Committee on Capital Market.

His GOS Foundation provides assistance in skills acquisition, educational development, micro-credit, healthcare and poverty alleviation. In the run-up to the April 2011 elections, Solomon was unopposed in his bid in the Action Congress of Nigeria primaries to run for reelection. He was reelected on 9 April.

In September 2011, it was reported that Solomon was arguing with ACN National Legal Advisor Muiz Banire over who would be the next Mushin Local Government Chairman. The bickering threatened to tear the party apart, with PDP chieftain Waheed Lawon saying it was making it more likely for the PDP to “sweep both Mushin and Surulere at the upcoming local government elections.”

But eventually the spirit of oneness prevailed through the intervention of the ACN elders which culminated in the emergence of the ACN candidate as the winner of Mushin Local Government Chairmanship election. Solomon participated in the 2014 APC governorship primaries ahead of the 2015 election.
