A socialite and member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Shina Peller has announced his defection from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Peller, who represents Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa federal constituency at the House of Representatives, announced his defection in a letter to APC Ward 9 chairman, Koso in Iseyin local government area, Oyo State.
The popular business man said he took the decision to leave the APC after consulting with his constituents.
He stated that his people from the Oke Ogun region feel humiliated by the undemocratic acts and decisions of some gladiators within Oyo State APC.
Shina Peller said: “President Muhammadu Buhari preached bottom-to-top approach driven APC, but the undemocratic conduct of some party chieftains particularly in Oyo State has shown that the people from the grassroots and the youth will continue to be at the mercy of the few at the top, who impose their preferred candidate against the wish of the people, as recently witnessed in Oyo North Senatorial District where I belong.
“My people have therefore decided that we withdraw our membership of the APC, and I totally align with them as I delved into politics, not for a selfish reason but for the overall interest of Nigerian youths and the people of Oke Ogun. So. I hereby renounce my membership of the APC.”
