A member of the House of Representatives from Oyo State Shina Peller has joined Accord Party following his resignation from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Peller announced last Friday that he was leaving the APC, blaming it on the party’s dealings.
The lawmaker tweeted that he announced his new party on the floor of the House on Tuesday.
He said: 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.”
Peller added, “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.”
