Let us Start Changing Nigeria Together - Shina Peller Speaks On 2019 Elections


Next year is the General Elections and it has gotten everyone drawn to change the situation of things in the country.

Entrepreneur, industrialist and Aquila Group Chairman, Shina Peller shared some few words on the elections.

Read 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.

Bukunyi Olateru-Olagbegi shares Vision of Modern Democratic Party

#NotTooYoungtoRun: Bukunyi Olateru-Olagbegi shares Vision of Modern Democratic Party - BellaNaija

Bukunyi Olateru-Olagbegi, the brother of Media Personality Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi, has shared the vision of his newly registered party Modern Democratic Party (MDP).

Writing on his Instagram, Bukunyi described MDP as not just in the political space to take part; it is committed to building a structure capable of winning elections, he wrote.

He charged youths in the nation to bring their hands on deck, adding that MDP is committed to harnessing the resources of the youths. He wrote:

Over the last few days, I have received countless phone calls and messages filled with prayers, hope and support for which I am extremely grateful.
It is no secret that politics in Nigeria is unique and indeed very peculiar. It is one thing to define the battle; it is quite another knowing what it takes to win. In a world where ideals, personality, and good intentions are often seen as sufficient for political success, our political antecedents tell us otherwise. Wishful thinking is never, and never will be enough!

The 36-year-old tennis star was plagued by health problems and almost died after she welcomed daughter Alexis Jr. into the world four months ago.

Serena shared: 'I didn't expect that sharing our family's story of Olympia's birth and all of complications after giving birth would start such an outpouring of discussion from women - especially black women - who have faced similar complications and women whose problems go unaddressed.'

She continued: 'These aren't just stories: according to the CDC, (Center for Disease Control) black women are over 3 times more likely than White women to die from pregnancy - or childbirth-related causes.'

She sees wrong that must be made right. She takes action when everyone around her is idle.
