Shina-Peller

Member of the House of Representatives from Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa federal constituency, Oyo State, Shina Peller, has announced his defection from the All Progressives Party (APC) to Accord Party.

Peller, in a statement shared on his social media platforms on Tuesday, revealed that he chose Accord Party as his new party because the party has “shown an unwavering commitment to the yearnings of the people of Oke-Ogun. It has given us hope and a sense of belonging.”

According to him,  Accord Party is a force to reckon with when it comes to democracy and balloting.

He said: “After my exit from the APC, we engaged other political parties, we had numerous options, but we opted for Accord for very peculiar reasons.

“Accord party happens to be the first party in Oyo state to zone Oyo North Senatorial ticket to Oke Ogun considering that Ogbomosho Zone had done two terms.

“The party has shown an unwavering commitment to the yearnings of the people of Oke-Ogun. It has given us hope and a sense of belonging. In Oyo State, the Accord party is a force to reckon with, it’s internal democracy mechanism is intact, a component lacking in other parties.

“Accord party is also strategic as it concerns balloting. On the ballot paper, Accord comes first before the two major parties. With Accord as our party, voting sensitisation becomes easier for us to do.

“Today, I would like to inform the general public that I am now with Accord party”.

He added that “the logo of the Accord constantly reminds me and other well meaning Nigerians of their civic responsibility – to vote for credible leaders.

“In Oke-Ogun, Oyo North Senatorial District and Oyo State at large, Accord Party is our strength, it’s logo is our thumb – it’s our power and we shall make it count.”
