 Popular Socialite and Chairman of Aquilla Group, Chief Shina Peller, is currently under intense pressure by his indigenes of Oyo State, particularly his constituency to run for a political office in the 2019 general elections.

Peller, who was recently a guest of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Oyo State Chapter, confirmed the development, saying that the pressure is increasing by the day. He disclosed that he has been wooed severally to take advantage of his popularity and influence in the state for politics but is yet to make up his mind.

He said: “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.”

While the Iseyin-born philanthropist also spoke on his journey to popularity, he reiterated: “My popularity didn’t just start today; it came 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.”

On Nigerian economy, Peller emphasised that tourism holds a lot of potentials but is seriously underperforming due to several factors which include infrastructure, multiple taxation, and security. He urged the government to stop paying lip service to diversification in economy and ‘face reality’.
