House of Representatives member and Quilox night club owner, Shina Peller has revealed he has resigned from the management of the club.
Shina Peller revealed that since he became a member of the House of Representatives, he has quit management of Quilox night club. This he revealed while speaking on a motion to prevent sales of alcohol to underage.
While speaking on the Alcohol bill which was moved on Wednesday by Chinedu Martins to curb the consumption of alcohol by underage youths in Nigeria, Shina Peller said;
“When I was in the world, we don’t sell alcohol to underage.” Adding “in line with the constitution, I have stepped down from the club.”
Mr. Martins in his motion said;
“alcohol consumption among teenagers has led to an increased tendency towards violence in schools and related environments, high incidence of school dropouts and cases of physical and mental challenges.
The Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, however told Shina Peller that the house will send a delegation to confirm if indeed the club doesn’t sell alcohol to minors.
The Federal Ministry of Health has been called to liaise with the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) and the Consumer Protection Council (CPC) to put mechanisms in place to implement the age restriction on alcohol consumption.
