Lagos club owner, Shina Peller has officially declared his political ambition in a lengthy Instagram post moments ago.

 

Peller who runs the famous Quilox Nightclub in Lagos says: “one thing I can say for certain is I will be actively involved in the political process going forward, I will no longer sit back and watch things go bad.”

Read his full post below

“As we all know, election season in Nigeria is fast approaching and political gladiators are already building their war chests but the average young Nigerian is bothered less. It’s almost like a feeling of powerlessness and despair, most believe the processes have already been predetermined by the powers that be so why bother wasting time to get a voters card talk less of actually voting. The common notion is that the candidate with the largest war chest wins and we have heard many tales of people selling their votes for less than a dollar and a bag of chips.

“One thing is certain though nobody is happy with the state of Nigeria today, most people who know me can vouch for the fact that I have never been interested in politics and I have never had an eye for it, but with the level of decadence in the country today I have been forced to change my mind.

“I am very comfortable having recorded many successes in business over the years, it would be easier for me to just sit back and watch as I have been doing over the years, but what about the less privileged, the unemployed, the downtrodden? I need to be open about the fact that it’s the attitude of some people that has put the country in the situation it is in today and it is finally time for us to take responsibility for the type of country we want to live in.

“While I cannot say for certain if I will yield to the tremendous pressure on me to run for elective office from my constituency one thing I can say for certain is I will be actively involved in the political process going forward, I will no longer sit back and watch things go bad. I enjoin all young people to do the same, please register to vote, join a political party, run for office, be the change you seek, it’s time to stop ranting on social media and take positive actions.

“The young people in Nigeria are the most powerful single block in the country today however the old guard try to divide us along ethnic, religious and cultural lines, but once we unite nobody can stop us.
Lets start changing Nigeria together today.”

                                                          That’s why Africa is endowed with shittty leaders

                                                          So because he has money and is popular, then he deserves to be in politics?

                                                          angry

                                                          The same people pressurizing him will still call for his head later

                                                          Oga, just stay for your Quilox abeg. Nigerian politics is far far more brutal than regular club fights
