Famous former Nightclub owner currently a federal legislator representing Iseyin/Itesiwaju/ Kajola/Iwajowa federal constituency of Oyo State, Mr. Shina Peller, has quickly come out to issue a statement correcting a false representation of a recent statement of his about the age-long political style of forcing certain candidates down the throats of the citizens. Rather he said contrary to reports in some quarters he has nothing against the presidential ambition of the APC National leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, even describing his relationship with Asiwaju as that of a father and son relationship.
Shina Peller made the clarification in a statement on Sunday while reacting to news reports quoting him as saying that Tinubu should not be anointed president ahead of the 2023 election.

“My attention has been drawn to the news on blogs quoting me to have said that the APC Leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu should not be anointed as next president. Sadly, it is a misrepresentation of what I said. To set the record straight, I have nothing against our leader or his presidential ambition. I have enjoyed a father and son relationship with him for years, and it remains so,” Peller stated.
Explaining further, the Club Quillox boss said he only insisted on a fair and transparent process of picking leaders.

Shina Peller said, “I commented on the age-long political style of forcing candidates down the throats of the citizens, without thinking of the principles of equity, equality and fairness.
“I stated that the rest of the world is leaving Nigeria behind in terms of rapid growth and development and only through strong institutions, can we collectively make just decisions for visible progress in the country, especially in our electioneering process.
“The next general election is a reset period for our dear country. We must get it right! Our collective decision must be based on promoting peace and unity.”
