The Fake News Media Misrepresented My Stand, Tinubu Has My Unwavering Support To Be Nigeria’s Next President – Shina Peller

Published

on

Oyo federal lawmaker, representing Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency at the Federal House of Representatives, Hon. Shina Peller, has disassociated himself from the viral reports going around to the effect that he is against the choice of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections.

Hon. Peller made this clarification via his social media platforms, where he explained that the report being spread by bloggers is a misinterpretation of what he actually said during an interview he granted last month.

He said:

“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 President”.

“Sadly, it is a misrepresentation of what I said. To set the record straight, I have nothing against our leader nor his presidential ambition. I have enjoyed a father and son relationship with him for years, and it remains so.

“I commented on the age-long political style of forcing candidates down the throat 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 make 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.

“Most importantly, I urge the media practitioners, who are regarded as the fourth estate of the realm, to use their powerful instruments to promote love, peace and unity rather than stir up disunity, disaffection and unnecessary conflicts.”
