A member of the House of Representatives representing the Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency, Hon. Shina Abiola Peller, has said that Nigeria urgently needs only leaders to deliver a functional system by 2023.

Peller, who is the Settlement candidate for the Oyo North Senatorial District for the 2023 election, made the disclosure on Sunday.

The lawmaker, in a statement signed by his media aide Kola Popoola and made available to the DAILY POST, advised Nigerians to elect only competent, patriotic and selfless leaders from all political parties.

He said that only competent, patriotic and selfless leaders can offer a working system for Nigeria to progress.

Peller, while speaking, expressed confidence that 2023 would be a year of progress for citizens.
