The lawmaker, who spoke at the launch of the ‘We2geda Movement’ on Saturday in Lagos, said to achieve a formidable Nigeria, enterprising citizens must imbibe the culture of sacrifice.

Peller said it was due to sacrifice that he had diverted the resources meant for the expansion of his nightclub business in Abuja to empower the youth.

“The time has come for us to build institutions of forward thinkers, who must identify criteria that our leaders must have,” he said.

“The time has come where we have to sacrifice. I started a project to expand Quilox to Abuja in 2019 but i woke up one day and thought about the future of this country and i said to myself ‘do i want to build myself or build my business or do i want to build a future for my children?’

“And that is when it got dawned on me that i should divert my resources to build and strengthen young minds since we are the work force of this country. And i decided to put this project on hold.

“The same resources that i would have spent on that project has been diverted to building and strengthening our youths because i know by 2023, if we build a strong army of youths that believes that the future of this country rest on their shoulder, we can be able to build a country that works for all of us.

“2023 presents us a lifetime opportunity for the Nigeria youth to make a resounding statement through our strength and we must not lose this rare opportunity.”
