Member of the House of Representatives, Shina Peller has called for donations from Nigerians, asking them to support his 2023 presidential ambition.
The lawmaker intends to join the 2023 presidential race under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking on Twitter on Wednesday, the representative of the Iseyin / Itesiwaju / Kajola / Iwajowa region in the 9th National Assembly shared photos of his presidential poster with details of his bank account.
“In recent times, I have had several support groups clamouring that I make bold political moves. I sincerely thank them for their trust and concern. While there are calls for me to run for the Senate, others say I should throw my hat into the presidency ring,” he said in a tweet.
“As a leader, I understand that I must make tough decisions and make tough sacrifices to enhance the lives of people around me.
“I am not oblivious to the fact that persons of interest are donating to further this cause, however, the reality of our political system where delegates decide on the fate of millions makes the yearnings of the youth even more difficult.
“I appreciate everyone for their time and sacrifice. This is not about me but the next generation – I have always been committed to building a new generation of leaders. As young and credible people, it’s about time we make strong demands from our party. We must bring our negotiation strength and skills to the table even as political party primaries fast approach.
“To this end, a meeting by the coalition of Progressives Young Nigerians shall be taking place at Ikeja Airport Hotel, on Thursday 5th of May, by 3 pm. Young people seeking elective positions in the country are invited. #YouthsForPeller #PellerForTheYouths.”
The lawmaker under the tweet also posted another poster begging for donations to fund his senatorial campaign.
