It seems everyone in Nigeria is suddenly under pressure to run for a political office or contest for another term in office for those already in power. The governor of Benue state days ago disclosed that he was under serious pressure to run again, and he might bow to the call.

Now, popular Socialite and Chairman of Aquilla Group, Shina Peller, says he also is under intense pressure to run for a political office in 2019.

He says the indigenes of Oyo state particularly his constituency are piling tremendous pressure on him to run for a political office in the 2019 general elections.

A young and innovative mind in government would facilitate the overall development of the state, those people piling pressure on him told him.

Peller, who was recently a guest at Nigerian Union of Journalists NUJ Oyo state chapter, Ibadan, Oyo state, said he’s being wooed by many people to take advantage of his popularity and influence in the state for politics.

However, he is yet to make up his mind, he said, according to a statement sent to Simon Ateba News Africa in Washington DC

“For now, my business is my priority, although I’ve been receiving pressure from people from every corner to get involved in politics but I’m yet to make up my mind,” he said.

While the Iseyin-born philanthropist also spoke on his journey to popularity, he reiterated, “My popularity didn’t just start today, it was birth from my zeal to do everything I can in whatever capacity to assist people and encourage younger ones even from my days as a student at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology in Ogbomoso.”

Shina Peller who also commented on Nigerian economy, emphasized that tourism holds a lot of potentials for the Nigeria economy but is seriously under-performing due to several factors which include infrastructure, multiple taxation, and security. He however urged the government to stop paying lip service to diversification in economy and ‘face reality’.
