Rep. Shina Peller (APC-Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa) believes Nigeria has to create a fresh and functioning structure in order to get the country back on track.
This remark was stated by Peller during the fourth Oyo NUJ Ramadan Lecture/Iftar in Ibadan.
According to reports, the Ramadan Lecture/Iftar is an annual event sponsored by Peller.
The lecture delivered by a renowned Islamic scholar, Sheikh Taofeek Akeugbagold, was entitled: “2023 Election and Youths Participation for National Development: The Islamic Perspectives”.
Peller said it was time for Nigerians to understand that the country deserves a functional system toward rewriting the story of Nigeria.
“Our system is currently going through myriads of problems affecting this country today; until we develop a new system, we can’t put Nigeria back on the right track.
“This is not the time to get carried away by individual ambition or interest.
“This is the time to work collectively with everybody that is interested in building a new Nigeria.
“I will work with my party to ensure that we put into consideration the inclusiveness of women, youths and people with Disability,” he said.
Akeugbagold, who spoke as the Guest Lecturer, called on youths in the country to rise up to their responsibilities.
The Islamic cleric said that physical and mental capability matters most in leadership.
“Enough of our youths sitting behind, they should come out to lead. The Almighty Allah doesn’t bar elderly ones from contesting.
“The Almighty Allah doesn’t bar the elderly ones from contesting. The best thing to do is to let young ones be beside them.
“We are begging, we are appealing that youths should be given 95 per cent of the positions in government,” he said.
