Shina Peller set for senatorial post, rebuffs presidency



Honorable Shina Peller has announced his ambition to run for the Oyo North Senatorial District in the senate.


He said this on Thursday in Lagos making it clear that he will not be contesting the 2023 presidential election.


The lawmaker said, “People have been clamoring for me to run for the highest office in the country, while some have said I should run for a seat in the senate.


“These posts are elevated. I say thank you to the people who find me worthy of these positions.


“These clamors have created mixed reactions because, in Nigeria, we don’t think about people but only about ourselves.


“The reason I have come into politics is to help the people, not for my benefit.


“But as great leaders, you will be forced to take risks, make sacrifices and also do things that will benefit the people.


“On that note, I declare my intention to run for a seat at the senate representing Oyo North senatorial district.


“I will not lead our youths into a war that we cannot win. Our party will most likely make use of an indirect poll, which means the elections will be at the mercy of the delegates.


“How many of the delegates believe in the leadership of the youths?”


Peller currently represents Iseyin, Kajola, Iwajowa, and Itesiwaju federal constituency.
