Rep. distances self from report linking him to rejection of Tinubu for 2023 Presidency

A federal lawmaker representing Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency at the Federal House of Representatives, Hon. Shina Peller, has distanced himself from a news report making the rounds that he is against the choice of National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as the presidential candidate of the party in 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.

According to Hon. Peller, “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.
