2019: Shina Peller Declares Intention To Run For House Of Reps

Shina Peller, the owner of Quilox nightclub, has declared his intention to contest for a House of Representatives’ seat in 2019.

Peller, who made the announcement on Friday via his social media page, expressed his intention to represent Iseyin, Itesiwaju, Kajola, Iwajowa federal constituency of Oyo state at the upcoming general election.

The club owner said the era of “armchair politics is over” and that it is time “to take our destiny into our own hands” for the sake of the country.

According to Peller, he is delving into politics to “ensure that institutions work and people can benefit from government services”.

This came after president Buhari signed the “not too young to run” bill into law.

He wrote, “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,” the statement read.

“I appreciate the advice 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.”
