Kola Popoola, the lawmaker’s media assistant, said in a statement on Sunday that Peller spoke in Abuja after receiving the honor of being named the National Association of Nigerian Students’ Life Patron during a ceremony to celebrate the organization’s 40th birthday.

Additionally, the politician received an award for Outstanding Leadership.

He expressed his displeasure over the lingering Academic Staff Union of Universities strike which has seen undergraduates in Nigerian Universities out of school for 194 days with no desirable resolve from the concerned authorities.

Peller described the situation as worrisome and called on Nigerian students to make their numbers count by ensuring that the country’s next set of leaders is patriotic and selfless Nigerians.

He said, “My profound gratitude to the student association for finding me worthy of the honor. Let me also seize this opportunity to remind Nigerian students of their numerical strength and how they can change the narrative in Nigeria – because the system has failed them.

Speaking further on the topic “Public education on the brink of collapse: Rescue it now or prepare for the alternative,” Peller said, “It is disturbing that Nigerian students are staying at home for 194 days due to the ASUU strike.

“The country’s education system is on the brink of collapse and Nigerian students must use their numbers to usher in a pro-people leadership in 2023.

“With over 30 million Nigerian students in the country, President Muhammadu Buhari won the previous election with slightly more than 15 million votes.

“This demonstrates that the Nigerian student population is capable of influencing and changing the leadership direction in our nation. The youth are the future and must become more involved in the process of electing competent and visionary Leaders. The time is now!”

Explaining the rationale behind the award of the Life Patron of the National Association of Nigerian Students given to the lawmaker, the NANS President, Sunday Asefon, stated that the lawmaker had always been an advocate of Nigerian students and youth and that he is ever concerned about their welfare and development.

Recall that Peller, through his NGO, Lead Generation Initiative has successfully trained thousands of youths across the country on effective leadership skills, strategic communication, civic responsibility, active citizenship, and nation building.
