“I Cannot Afford To Be Selfish” – Shina Peller Says, As He Eyes House Of Reps’ Seat
Shina Abiola Peller has declared his ambition to represent the people of his constituency in Oyo State at the National Assembly House of Representatives.
Peller, an astute businessman, has been officially nominated to represent the Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa federal constituency on the platform of the ruling party, APC.
The 42-year-old told newsmen at the flag-off of his declaration and campaign that he has taken up the challenge to ensure better welfare for the people.
“I have decided to join this political race because my people have spoken to me and I have listened,” Peller said.
“My people know my worth, my achievements and having somebody that can actually represent this constituency has been a challenge, I cannot afford to be selfish, I have to think about the less privileged too.”
Peller also announced the launch of his empowerment and grassroots development programme which he called Shina Ayo Empowerment Programme, SAEP.
He said the programme is aimed at empowering the youths and women, and will spread across the four zones in Oke-Ogun even up to ward level.
“The young people of Nigeria are the most powerful single block in the country, we would not allow ourselves to be used by people who do not have our interest at heart,” he stated.
