Peller, a member of the House of Representatives made this known while speaking on a motion to prevent sales of alcohol to underage.
Another lawmaker, Chinedu Martins had on Wednesday moved a motion on the need to curb consumption of alcohol by underage youths in Nigeria.
But Peller while speaking on the motion 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.”
The Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, on a jovial note asked: “Where are you now?” Adding that the house will send a delegation to confirm if indeed the club is not selling alcohol minors.
The mover of the motion, Mr. Martins in his motion said that “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.
