Quilox night club boss, Shina Peller has declared his intention to run for political office. In a statement released, he spoke of his ambition to contest in the 2019 elections to stand the chance of representing an Oyo state federal constituency. His declaration is coming just few hours after President Buhari signed the Not Too Young To Run bill which allows youths as young as 30 years old to run for any political office.
Read Shina Peller’s statement below.
My people, after a deep thought, reflection and extensive consultations, I have decided to formally declare my intention to represent the Iseyin, Itesiwaju, Kajola, Iwajowa federal constituency at the house of representatives in 2019.
I appreciate the advise and concern from well wishers and mentors who are worried that going into politics will be detrimental to my business interests which I have worked so hard to build over the last two decades but I think the time for social media and arm chair politics is over. We need to take our destiny into our own hands for the sake of Nigeria, for the sake of our children, and the less privileged in our society.
My focus in politics will be to ensure that institutions work and people can benefit from government services irrespective of class or social status.
I want to help create policies that will help diversify our economy with a renewed focus on tourism, manufacturing and youth empowerment.
I encourage all young people to follow my cue and take an active role in partisan politics. This is our time. The time is now.
Shina Peller is the son of late Magician Professor Peller who died in 1997.
