Shina Peller Honoured With Doctorate In Dubai

The federal lawmaker, Shina Peller has been presented an honorary Doctorate degree in Business Administration by the American Heritage Southern California University in Dubai.

Barely a month after, His Imperial Majesty, Iku Baba Yeye, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Atanda Adeyemi III, the Alaafin of Oyo, conferred the title of Ayedero of Yorubaland (someone who brings peace, tranquillity and prosperity) on Hon. Shina Peller, and his wife as yeye Ayedero of Yorubaland.

The member of the House of Representatives from Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency, Oyo State, Hon. Shina Peller has been decorated with an award of Doctorate Degree in Business Administration by the American Heritage Southern California University in Dubai.

Peller expressed his profound gratitude to the organizers of the event and the school for finding him worthy of the honour, describing it as a challenge for him to be better in his benevolent acts and humanitarian gesture not just in Nigeria but in Africa as a whole.

The entrepreneur seized the opportunity to share a few of his most pressing thoughts on investment in Africa, particularly Nigeria. He said, although Nigeria is blessed with resources, the resources are not properly tapped.

According to him, “We cannot have a discussion about Africa’s global economic future without mentioning Nigeria. Nigeria is naturally endowed with vast natural resources promising potential national success, but unfortunately, this has not always translated. Perhaps it is because regardless of the resources, people and vision will always be the driver of certain and lasting change.

“In this regard, we need to start exploring the potential of the Nigerian people with a population of about 240 million and the youth occupying about 75% of it.

“Our socio-political environment and its attendant instability is our biggest threat, and to address this, the youth must be used as the driver and sustainer of peace. My point is that stability and predictability are what guarantee investment, and this can only be achieved when there is peace.”
