Shina Peller and Tinubu

Member of House of Representatives, Iseyin, Itesiwaju, Kajola, Iwajowa Federal constituency Shina Peller has been mocked online after debunking presidential ambition.

This comes a few days after the presidential campaign posters of Shina Peller surfaced online and were spotted at some strategic locations in Ibadan.

Shina Peller is one of the young political office holders some Nigerians expect to contest for a critical position in the 2023 general elections.

However, in a statement on his social media page, Shina Peller dashed the hope of many youths he debunked joining the presidential race.

Shina Peller said he aligns himself with the clamours of the youths for a better Nigeria, courage, doggedness and youthful determination for a vibrant person to lead.

However, the struggle for a better Nigeria shouldn’t be about individual ambition but about collectively redefining the destiny of a great nation.

Therefore, he has chosen to work with his party, the All Progressive Congress, to ensure only a candidate who can provide the desired leadership emerge out of the primaries.

The statement earned him many criticisms as some youths claimed he was afraid of the National leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

He wrote: For clarity and to properly respond to unanswered questions, I deem it fit to address those concerns.

I have been visited by various youth groups calling on me to officially declare for the highest office in the land. They say Nigeria deserves a young, energetic, innovative, detribalized and dynamic leader who is successful in both public and private life to lead the nation.

Truly, Nigeria needs the kind of leadership these youths groups are yearning for. A leadership that can foster national unity, and ensure inclusion of women, youths and persons with disability. A leadership that can create and drive a system that functions for all, and not selected few.

I align myself with the clamours of the youths for a better Nigeria. I align with their courage, doggedness and youthful determination for a vibrant person to lead. Northern youths in particular have demanded that I join the presidential race scattering Shina Peller for President posters across the country. As Nigeria is at crossroads, the nation needs politicians and leaders who can make sacrifices at this crucial time. More so, it will give meaning to the Not Too Young To Run bill that was signed by President Muhammadu Buhari a few years ago. A bill that has since paved the way for young people to contest elections in Nigeria.

However, the struggle for a better Nigeria shouldn’t be about individual ambition but about collectively redefining the destiny of our great nation. It is for this reason that I have chosen to work with my party to ensure only a candidate who can provide the desired leadership emerge out of the primaries.

Collectively, we must work to achieve this, not leaving out the youths who are critical stakeholders in the nation – party leaders must ensure they are carried along in all deliberations.

As the 2023 general election approaches, let’s continue to put Nigeria first before ethnicity, religion and politics. God bless
