I’ll decide on presidential candidate to support by January
Shina Peller, a member of the House of Representatives, says he does not yet have a preferred presidential candidate.
Peller, Yorubaland’s Ayedero, stated this on Tuesday during a visit to Gani Adams, Yorubaland’s Aare Ona Kakanfo, in Ondo state.
The lawmaker, who previously served in the All Progressives Congress (APC) and is now a member of the Accord Party, stated that he will inform his supporters of who to support and vote for by January 2023.
“It is not too late to settle on a presidential candidate of your choice by January 2023,” his media office quoted him as saying.
Peller also stated that youths have a significant role in the country’s peace-building efforts.
In my capacity as the Ayedero of Yorubaland, I paid a courtesy visit, with my brother from the south-eastern part of the country, Prince S. Williams (Onwa), chairman, monarch group, to Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Aare Gani Adams,” he said.
We had an elaborate discussion bordering on how to strengthen peaceful co-existence of the Yorubas with all other tribes, both within and outside Yorubaland, particularly as the 2023 elections beckon.
In the course of our discussion, we agreed that before any meaningful progress can be recorded in any part of the country, there is a need for all tribes and ethnic groups to interact and live peacefully with one another. There cannot be progress without peace.
Aare Gani Adams seized the opportunity to commend my efforts through the Lead Generation Initiative (LGI) training thousands of youths across the country on effective leadership skills, strategic communication, civic responsibility, active citizenship, political mobilisation, political organising and nation building.
The bottom line is that irrespective of our ethnic, religious and political affiliation, we all need one another to survive and advance appropriately. This is why we must not compromise our peaceful coexistence.
Nigerian youths have significant roles to play in peace building and this is why I will not hesitate on initiating strategies and supporting anything that is youth-driven.
