A popular politician and member of the House of Representatives from Oyo State, Shina Peller, has decamped to the Accord Party (AP) from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
You will recall that the popular politician and son of a notable magician has earlier announced his defection from the ruling party on Friday. This was owing to the zero subscription of the party to democratic tenets.
In an interview with Peller, he noted that the Accord Party embodies ideals that can be reckoned with. This is apart from the fact that it comes first on the ballot and advances democracy.
He wrote: In Oyo State, the Accord Party is a force to reckon with, its 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 sensitization becomes easier for us to do.
“Today, I would like to inform the general public that I am now with the Accord party. 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, its logo is our thumb – it’s our power and we shall make it count”
